"The Suitor" Starring Nyah and Keira

The girls got involved in a play this year.
It was put on by Keira’s Kindergarten teacher from last year.
I was very hesitant about putting Keira in this.
Her teacher assured me it would be just fine.
Nyah absolutely loved the play and really thrived being in it.
Nyah ended up getting one of the biggest parts.
She had to memorize a lot of lines.
Her part in the play was an angel influence.
Her characters name was Anela.
They gave Keira a speaking part.
This really made me nervous.
It was just one line.
Her characters name was Janna.
We had her trained like a robot.
Anytime, anyone would say the line that came before Keira’s,
She would automatically say her line.
It was pretty funny.

The night of the production came.
You know how when you go to a performance with kids.
There is always that ONE kid that everyone is laughing at?
Well, that would be Keira.
She got bored during the show.
She started to entertain herself.
The longer the show went on, the worse or funnier she got.
Afterwards perfect strangers were talking about how funny she was.
She asked us why we were laughing at her.
That’s what makes it funnier.
She doesn’t realize the attention she draws to herself.
She had a stuffed animal and she would fly it around the stage.
During singing numbers she would frolic across the stage.
She played with the microphone in the floor.
It made a loud noise.
It scared her.
The WHOLE audience laughed.
She stuck the stuffed animal down her shirt.
She danced with it in her shirt.
I was laughing so hard I was crying.
She definitely dances to the beat of her own drummer!
Nyah on the other hand, did AWESOME!!
That kid is a natural.
She was scared that she would mess up.
She always stayed in character.
In my personal opinion she did the best with her character.
Of course, I am biased
I really LOVED watching her do something she does so well at.
Something she loves to do.
She wants to do it again in the fall.
I am all for it.
I think we will have Keira sit this one out.
Can’t have her stealingthe show every time.
It was so much fun watching their play.
Some of their teachers from school even came to watch it.
We got them both flowers for their performances.

PS There is more blog posts to come about the girls end of school and Nyah's birthday so stay tuned...
