OK, Maybe She's Not Exactly Like Me....
I asked my mom today, just to make sure. "Nope, you were never that squirrelly as a child in a concert-like setting". That's what I thought.
Now, don't get me wrong. I wasn't really bothered by Mikayla's behavior. Given her age, a little bit of "off focus behavior and diversions" is kind of precious. But, we will need to step it up a bit before she takes on the coveted "Mary role" in Norkenzie's Christmas Pageant. I was thrilled when we were told that's who she would be, however, am now wondering if we need to pull her hair back in braids so she doesn't end up chewing on it the whole time like she did last night!
The picture shows her putting her arms inside her shirt - fortunately, that was predominately during rehearsal so daddy was able to ask her to not do it during the concert. We forgot to mention the hair thing, squatting during the performance, or turning around and talking. Oh well - it was so sweet - and she wasn't the only one.
