I interupt our normally scheduled “thrift” vlog to
brag, update you on my son’s first major achievement of his elementary career. Don’t leave read more..I promise a vlog tomorrow..maybe.
Listen. My son, the one I made all by myself got chosen for the school’s recitation contest. For those not familiar, he gets to memorize a poem to be said in front of his class with a few other
talented children. Out of the chosen ones in his class only one, my son will then compete to represent his school in the county wide competition.
So this is how those mother’s become crazy pageant dress, flipper promoting, eyelash glue-ing maniacs. Except in my case it would be excessive memorization, and poem searching. Could he be the next famous child spoken word artist? If he wins this we will be all over entering contests. No? Okay I promise…I can’t say about that Easter speech though.
Seriously. We couldn’t be more proud of him. We practiced today for far longer than we should but I want him to win. I try not to show him that side of me. Mr. and I had the talk with him that he may not win but the best opportunity was that he was chosen. I won’t lie I reallllllly want him to win the county competition. I already know what he’s wearing.
Lil Mama’s serious upper body strength and Lil Man’s spoken word skills. We are making stars over here.
