This afternoon we had the grandparents' privilege of watching HRH the granddaughter as one of the Dorothys in her day care center's production of The Wizard of Oz. I am very impressed with the efforts of the staff and high school students who helped. The infants, toddlers and pre-schoolers were darling in their own ways, but their natural-ness was more charming than a production of tots in tiaras or tap shoes would have been. The community is lucky to have these dedicated care givers/specialists.
Above, as you might have guessed is the darling granddaughter.
I always like toddler sized lions (or bears). Oh My!
We got to go with her parents and her Aunt (my daughter). I had some moments of sadness while in the auditorium as I thought about the performances I had had to miss we was a brief wave of angst because my ex and his wife (the other in-state grandparents) were there. I musta been an only child because I still have a hard time sharing... or playing very well with others. DH, though was a peach. Impeccably polite to Pop Pop and Gi Gi. They left immediately after the performance because they were going to drive west and see if they could set up their telescope in time to see Venus cross in front of the face of the Sun.
