2006, 06/12 - Baby's First Recital!

She loved it! She wants to do more recitals! Every day!

Tap costume

Ballet costume

Ready to go on-stage for rehearsal

Caption: The recital!

Better caption: Me, excitedly recording a moment I would 10 minutes later accidentally delete--causing massive and life-long self-hatred.

But at least I recorded the rehearsal--although not with my fancy, brand-new, expensive, bought-just-for-this-recital camcorder.

And I did successfully record her ballet performance--only lost the tap. Still...GOD!
Hate! Self!

Me, excitedly recording a moment I will NEVER EVER EVER delete.

Need to make copies. Lots and lots of copies. And hide them. In a vault. Away from stupid me!

2006, 06/01 - Simma down nah!

  1. I have vanilla nut coffee and several kinds of muffins and two giant croissants. HAPPY!
  2. SO! HAPPY!

Decided last night that:

  1. Munchkin is too bossy.
  2. This is my fault, because I've always thought the bossiness was cute.
  3. The bossiness is sometimes very cute--because she's just like ME!
  4. But the bossiness is no longer cute now that [drumroll for last night's epiphany]: For probably the first time ever, Munchkin and I do not actually want the same things. We're both growing up, and a little bit apart, but in a normal way. And it's hard. She's my BABY and I want her to STAY my baby. And she kinda wants to stay my baby, too. (aww) So we're both trying to boss each other into playing along with our own plans. Kinda funny, in a way.
  5. But now it's time for me to really learn how to assert my motherly authority.
  6. I guess.
