When we brought her home, she continued on her dramatic path. Screaming for 3 hours straight on the first night home was just a small hint of her present day vocal abilities. Soon she dropped the crying for hamming it up.
It wasn't long before she was able to turn everything into a life or death situation. For instance, sitting on metal turtles.
Once she started preschool she really worked the starlet act. She stayed up late, slept in late, and had to have beautiful hair while doing it!
Once she started kindergarten, the up all night and play all day had to go. The demanding schedule of entertaining a classroom of 20 every day required sleep. But when she was entertaining, she gave it her all.
Then came her big break. She finally had a play to perform in. It may not have been a lead role, but she took it just as seriously. She attended every rehearsal, even with a fever of 103 and a mask on to keep her from sharing her virus. (which turned into strep throat after the performance)
This morning she was so busy singing, making faces, and acting in the mirror, I could hardly get ready. I realized this summer is going to be crazy with her. I wish there were a free drama camp that she could spend all day at, where she could nurture her talent, and get all that energy out! Then she would really be ready for audtions this Fall.
Wait this Fall, is auditions, and the show. There is something else happening this Fall. Yes, it hit me. I have no idea how she'll get to auditions and the show, as most likely I will have had the babies, or be so close I won't be able to do all the running around. Guess I know what task, people that offer to "help" will be signed up for.

I have determined that it is Blogger and my Outlook that are not getting along. If you have a blogger blog, it may take me longer to visit you. I'm still working on correcting the problem (or abandoning my RSS feeds and using another reader), but I have some deadlines looming and Dana's surgery in Seattle is Monday morning.
