Last Thursday was the Winter Program at Nadia and Aidan's school. First up, the kindergartners, singing such favorites as that 'Patito' song, Up on a House Top, and Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer. You can see she really got into that 'Patito' song. She is about to take flight!!! Nadia was in the front row, (get use to is sweetie). She said afterward that she was a little embarrassed.
Aidan came strolling in. When I say strolling, I mean shoulders back swagger. There he was, right of center, second-row from the top, chattin' up his buddies, and completely oblivious that there are about 150 parents there to see their little children shine. His first grade class sang Cho-Co-La-Te and We Wish You a Merry Christmas. Aidan, however, could be seen mouthing the words a good two seconds after his classmates or turning around to check out what the kids behind him were doing or my favorite, yawning. Not one little descrete yawn but 9 separate, long, I-am-bored-out-of-my-flippin-gourd yawns. Sorry to trouble you son, but I do like to see you dressed up singing a song or two once in a while. At least he didn't turn around and wag his behind at the crowd as they sang a song about a little duck. . . this time, anyway.
I wonder what the spring program has in store for us?
