Jiminy in the mix, Mae Meltdown, Emmy-ghetto biker chick


This is the beginning of the meltdown. We were at Mae's little pre-school graduation where a great deal of singing and choreography had been learned. Mae had performed her star routine flawlessly several times at the house before we left, but when we got there, it was just too much for her little quiet soul. Thus, the tears began.

She got up there, good sport that she is, but it was too much. She cried for her Mom. It was heartbreaking...just heartbreaking.

Finally, she couldn't take it any longer and zoomed past Grandma Moo, sitting on the ground in the front row as I was snapping a picture. I actually thought the photo was kind of cool. Her little red, white and blue ribbons in her ponytail were streaking out behind and blended with the red, white and blue shiny stars that were blowing in the breeze...pretty...tragic, but still pretty.

Finally, when the singing and dancing was over, Mae was awarded the "Future Teacher Award"...that's our Mae. She helps the teacher...A LOT.

Back at Em's house, we played around on Clarkie's Big Wheel where Emmy did her best biker chick impersonation...yea, she's bad...Em Dawg....E-Homeslice

We also posed for one of our "cheek 2 cheek" pics. Afterwards, we both agreed that I looked kinda sorta like a bug, but more like a lizard...my vote is still with the bug...Jiminy Cricket comes to mind...come on...I do...admit it....I'm Jiminy all up in this mix....Anyway, the night was fun and we all went home and played and laughed and all was well.
