Kyndal had his first Christmas program tonight! The daycare put on a prsesentation of The Tree Trees for family and friends. And of course, my son wouldn’t be anything if he wasn’t himself. Did he stay in his place on stage and sing as he was supposed to. Absolutely not! One minute he was there, I picked my camera up and focused on his spot, get ready to snap the picture, and he’s gone! I look up and he’s standing next to his teacher and I get the impression he’s asking her to talk in the microphone that the narrator was using to tell the story cause he’s pointing and gesturing to it animatedly. We try to motion to him to go back to his place, but he flat out ignores us. Our son stands on stage, taking his reindeer antlers off – he was a reindeer in program – staring out at the audience, not singing the songs that he made us practice with him over and over and over again. Eventually he did get into the spirit. Although his place in the spotlight at the front of the stage stayed vacant, he did stand off to the side with his teacher and sing – while holding her hand most of the time. Our baby, why we thought he would do anything different, I don’t know. Kyndal will always be Kyndal. That you can take to the bank.
