The girls have been singing “It’s a Jungle Out There” for weeks…they’ve been practicing their “monkey moves”…they’ve been reciting lines that aren’t even theirs…they’ve been telling us ALL about the play at school.
This week was finally the week! And as luck (or something) would have it, we got to attend the play TWICE.
The school divided the kiddos into two groups, one to perform on Tuesday night, and the other on Thursday night. Being in separate classes, the girls’ performances happened to fall on different nights.
I know I could have asked their teachers to allow them to perform together…and one of their teachers eventually volunteered this as an option. This certainly would have been more convenient, but I actually kinda like the way it worked out.
Baby A’s performance was first. She was the most excited little monkey!!!
How fun it was to sit back, Baby B alongside me and Hubby, to watch Baby A do her thing.
Baby B’s performance was tonight. Baby A was a little wistful that she didn’t get to wear her monkey hat, but I reminded her it was her turn to observe.
This was a rare opportunity for the girls to have the spotlight to themselves, and for one to sit back and take it all in. (And the play was so stinkin’ adorable and the songs were so catchy, it really was fun to see it twice.)
Baby B enjoyed an extra-special something at the end of the night. I could see her on the final song, doing the motions, but not actually singing. That’s very unlike her…and when we got to her classroom after the play, I saw why.
B lost her first front tooth!!!
Now a snaggle-toothed monkey, B was even more ecstatic. (I wouldn’t have thought that possible!)
