OK, funny story about each of my kids from the last couple of days.
Last night, Wyatt and I went to see Harry Potter and McDonald's before. I got my fries and they were old and cold. Yuck! McDonald's fries just aren't what they used to be. Anyway-I digress. I took my fries back up and asked for fresh ones. Seriously, they were bad. Jump ahead to the movie. We're sitting waiting for it to start. Wyatt looks at me and says, "Mom, you embarrass me sometimes." I'm like, "What? Like when?" He said, "When you went up and asked for new fries, that was just embarassing." Oh, my---and how many years of this do I have to look forward to???
Ok, now Lily. This was funny. We're eating at the chinese buffet tonight after dance(I'll tell you about that in a minute) and she looks up and says, "I must be a side kick" meaning psychic. She said, "I heard the word drink in my head and then you took a drink and a last year at school I heard the word timber in my head and then someone in my class fell down". She said, "That happens sometimes, I hear things in my head and then they happen." Oh my, I may have the next Sylvia Browne on my hands. LOL!
The reason we were at dance in the middle of summer is--I decided to let Lily do the Cecchetti exam at her studio. In this method of ballet, these exams are mandatory later, so it is good practice for them at this level. Lily's teacher thinks she is really doing well and paying attention in class more than ever, so she thought it would be good for her to do it. I think it will be a good experience for her to go in front of the examiner and get "graded". They will give us a detailed sheet with what Lily is doing well on and what she needs to work on. We have never participated in the past, but I do feel like she's getting more serious about it, so I thought it would be good for her. The exam is in late August and she will do classes until then to get her ready for what she will be tested on. I'll let you know how she does!
