On Friday, we attended Bean's Christmas Program at her preschool. (The experience we had at our school was quite different than the hell on Earth another set of parents experienced at their school the same day and that is not lost on me.)
But since Halloween, we've been listening to Bean sing Christmas carols and recently, she's been showing us her dance moves, too.
Her class sang Rudolph, The Red-Nosed Reindeer, regular and Spanishized, and she got to be Dancer. I thought that was pretty good casting myself.
We were wondering how this would all shake out because last year at the same program, during the first few opening notes of the first song, Bean dashed off stage and ran to us and stayed there for the remainder of the show. She was Dasher that year in name only.
But this year she did a wonderful job. She enjoyed herself and her smile was huge when she finally found Daddy and Mommy in the audience.
And might I add that with the wonderful use of the antlers by her teacher, you couldn't (hardly) notice the self-inflicted haircut! Thanks, Teach!
