It's Whatever Day I Need It To Be
Technically, it's Saturday morning but I'm posting as if it's still Friday.
Thursday night, Peanut had her first grade performance.
It was the first time that she has had a performance at school.
Button went through it for the fourth time over a month ago.
(And Button was having a blast. For the first time, she got to sit with us while other kids were standing in front of a huge crowd singing.)
I don't think I have ever mentioned this on the blog before but Peanut is a neurotic kid. I'm not kidding. She cannot sit still when she's nervous or uneasy about something.
She is usually doing one of the following:
Picking at her cuticles
Biting her nails
Sort of smiling but looks like she's stretching her face
Blinking really hard over and over
Swinging her arms
Tapping her feet
Shrugging her shoulders
During the performance, she was doing at least 4 of them all at once.
It looked like she was going to explode.
Poor kid. We are doing everything we can to teach her to calm down.
But she did great. And she seemed to have fun.
After the performance, we gave Nana her Mother's Day gift early... a Living Locket.
She loved it. I gave her a brushed gold one filled with a a lot of hearts:
a heart with Nana stamped on it
a heart with Mom stamped on it
birthstones in the shapes of hearts for the girls, my husband, me, and my brother-in-law
The kids have less than a month of school left this year. Whoa.
Where in the heck did the school year go?
We are all looking forward to summer and some traveling.
