The recital was a lot of fun. The events leading up to the recital were a bit chaotic, but once she was on the stage, she was a star. She is much more graceful than her mommy!
The afternoon started with me being in charge of getting 5 giddy, giggly, 4 year old girls dressed and ready for the recital. Costumes, hair, make-up. It was a tad on the crazy side.
Then, all the girls, I mean like ALL the girls (not just my 5) were put in a staging room where they were to wait until it was their turn. It was more than a tad on the crazy side. Hope does not do well in these situations. Too much stimulation and noises...she just melts down. And she did just that. Luckily, I got her out of the room and in a quiet hallway before the meltdown got too terribly bad. Aunt Nenny showed up just in time with her iphone which kept Hope entertained until it was her turn to perform.
She really did well, and did everything she was supposed to do when it was her turn in the spotlight.
