Declan's preschool had their annual preschool feast yesterday. There was a very cute programme with each of the preschool classes singing two songs. There was a class of pilgrims, a class of Indians, and Declan's class- a class of turkeys. I knew this would be a challenge for him - singing in front of a couple hundred strangers, so my only hope was that he would wear his turkey hat. I got my wish. It was all very adorable, but the actual performance went a bit sideways.
When the turkeys took the stage, Declan did okay until he noticed me sitting pretty much right in front of him. He got a big laugh when he tried to leap off the stage to get to me. He cried through the rest of the songs but gamely tried to do a few of the actions anyway. The show must go on.
Afterwards, we shared a feast with all the preschoolers, their parents and grandparents. It was pretty sweet. And Declan wore his turkey hat for the next 6 hours. I loved every minute of it.
