This week was all about Tiger Lily. She had a theater camp all week. She told me after she came home the first day that she wanted to be Annie. I tried to prepare her for disappointment and told her there was very little chance of that happening, since all the little girls wanted to be Annie—but she didn't seem to hear me. Tuesday she came home and told me she got the part of Annie.
The girls at camp (and one boy!) practiced hard all week and presented a 15-minute abridged version of Annie for their families at the end. Red Chief acted as family videographer and went home and made a DVD of it the same day. Where did he learn how to do that? It is so rewarding to parent kids who are figuring out what they love to do in life, and who are getting old enough to do real things.
Also on the docket for Tiger Lily this week: a piano recital, a playdate, a mother-daughter paint night, and a birthday! More about some of those later, if I get to it.
