Anyway, the Hip Hop performance was at 4:30 in the afternoon -- better than the 1 PM drama performance but, geesh, how do they expect working parents to get to all these things? The winter concert next week is at 9:30 in the morning! School hours and functions are not designed with the idea of a life outside of school in mind. Anyway, Kai's part of the performance lasted 1 minute. But, it was a cute minute -- and she was quite proud of her "handstands".
The Hip Hop performance was on a Tuesday, and on Thursday of that week Kai was supposed to join her Spanish School classmates for their winter performance and fiesta (a nighttime performance! How novel!) Anyway, I picked her up from school a little early so we could get ready to go -- but, when we got home, Kai burst into tears and said she didn't want to perform and she didn't want to go to the fiesta. I was a little torn because I felt like her teacher was expecting her, but -- Kai isn't one to turn down a party and I could tell she was just tired. And, quite frankly, I was feeling a bit worn down by all the work, travel and school function juggle as well (this last week, I was in LA one day, Sacramento two days, and Kai had two performances... it's a lot to try to fit in!) So, we decided to have pancakes for dinner and watch videos instead. Turns out it was a good decision -- her meltdown was a prelude to illness... the last couple of nights, Kai has had croup and today she is feeling under the weather.
This weekend we are all hoping to catch up on a bit of housework and take a break. Here's to resting!
