Wow...what a week and now it's all over!!! My kids were awesome, beautiful and I am sooooooo proud of them. DJ rocked his solo, Kyra came through with ballet and she didn't look as lost as she did all week, and her tap really came together!! And, now, they are both tucked safely in their beds and will hopefully sleep in tomorrow!! Though, we all know Max can't seem to stay in bed past 6:30 or 7 these days!!
So, yeah...this new location for the recital was a little (OK...ALOT) chaotic this year. Drop off was long and hot. You had to stand in a really long line and give your info in case of emergency and than leave your kid. I think they needed a few more people there (and perhaps set up the tables outside so they had more room???) for check-in. It might have gone quicker. I also went in with my kids to make sure they were settled and knew where their stuff was!!
Franny Girl and Max went to Uncle Kevin's house during the first show. Had a good time there!! Hopefully FrannyGirl was good for them...she's so out of sorts these days...rosy cheeks, heat rash, teething, ear aches...oh, and she's stll not sleeping well!!! The countdown has begun for her crib...I'm gonna cry longer and harder than she will:(
No wait...when they say they only want 1 person from each family to go pick up the dancers, they really do mean that!!
Oh yeah...forgot to mention that I had to escort MIL into ladies room today and help her with pants/girdle and stuff...ummmm, uncomfortable!! Did I mention that she broke her arm in 4 different places???
OK- show 1 is over (about an hour late) and we are supposed to leave the kids for the next show in there. Ummmmmm, what's going on for 2nd show...nobody knows!! Ha...take her out for some air and than go grab her some pizza!! DJ and I get to hang out together...you know, I sat on the steps eating like a normal human being while he chomped some pizza, climbed a wall, slid down the pole on the stairs, took another bite, threw some rocks, almost went through the water...gotta love that kid!!!
Doug comes back to 2nd show with Franny Girl...she wanted nothing to do with the in-laws (sorry, but I can't really blame her on this one). She is miserable to begin with and for some reason she just doesn't like MIL. And, MIL can't even pick her up these days and I have no idea if FIL is even willing to change a diaper. So, she got to see the show...ha ha ha...from the lobby that is!!! But, at least I got to see Kyra do her tap on stage and than hubby took DJ and FrannyGirl home to relieve in-laws of Max duty!! Of course Kyra's tap dance is like 4th from the end...so he was there for most of the show...
I think that's about the extent of it...I'm tired and need some sleep...here's hoping FrannyGirl sleeps tonight:) Well, let's hope she sleeps longer than 2 hours at a time b/c I could use longer than 2 hrs at a time!!!
Random thought- Enjoy your kiddies up on that stage while you can and quit complaining about the NO AC in the theater!! (ha ha ha)
