Talent Show

Last Friday night was the end of the year Talent Show and Potluck Dinner at ThePinkThing's after-school program. ThePinkThing and her BFF (N) sang a song (DonGato) and also did some hula hooping. TPT is an amazing hula hooper (is that a word?). She can hula hoop for 2 straight minutes (and if you think that's not hard, try it yourself). She must've gotten those genes from TheHusband's side of the family. I can't hula hoop at all and never could. My sister-in-law, on the other hand, hula hoops for exercise. She exercises with a 5 lb hula hoop every day for 30 minutes. It's insane. But TPT and N were really cute as they were doing it. They didn't care if they messed up. They were just having fun.


A couple of acts later they got on the stage and sang Don Gato, which is a song TheHusband remembers learning in kindergarten. I hadn't ever heard it before TPT came home singing it, but now I know the words. And, yes, it gets stuck in my head. But aren't they cute? (TPT is the one with the ponytails.)



And it was ThePinkThing's idea to wear matching outfits. Maybe I should have called her TheGreenThing instead...

Now that the Smart Twins are all graduated, I don't have these events to attend anymore.

I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not...

How cute. Glad she had fun and is comfortable doing things like that. :)

They looked like they were having a blast! So, what's up for TPT for summertime?

neurondoc said...

She'll be in day camp for the whole summer, because I am one of those evil mothers who work outside the house. We will be taking 2 long weekends, but no long vacations. To be honest, I wish that I could go to camp for the whole summer.

Yup, that is a darn cute kid.

Hi, Evil Mother (g). Hey, day camp is WAY more fun than school or home.

For parents? Yes. Getting to go somewhere with NO chores, no work schedule, just to play...sounds great. Even if I never could learn to weave a lanyard correctly :)

Apropos of nothing, you title just stuck The Replacements song straight into my brain.

"In my waxed up hair and my painted shoes
Got an offer that you might refuse
Tonight, tonight, we're gonna take a stab
Come on along, we'll grab a cab

We ain't much to look at so
Close your eyes, here we go
We're playin' at the talent show
Playin' at the talent show
Come on along, here we go
Playin' at the talent show
Check us out, here we go
Playin' at the talent show"

Jim, she looks like me, not TheHusband. :-)

She looks *just* like you, but with TH's coloring, last time I looked (g)!

neurondoc said...

Nope, TPT has my coloring: my olive skin and the same color hair I had when I was her age. She likes to hold her arm up to TH's and not how much "pinker" he is.
