My little fantasy

Sharing is caring!

A little boy dreams … a dream about snow white and the evil step mother; about the little princess being banished from her kingdom ; about making new friends, the wild animals and the lovely  7 dwarfs who loved to dig dig and dig some more for diamonds… Wondering what i’m talking about??? This was the theme for the annual day function at Lil p’s school.

When the school announced that there would be a practice session in a branch nearly 10 kms from the present school, I was really worried about sending Lil P alone in the bus. So i asked her teacher if i could tag along in the bus. I must tell u the whole experience was A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!!!!

I learnt that Lil p has her own group n seat reserved in the bus.. Most kids have a great time. Some promptly fell asleep. Most were very very close to their teachers.. taking their permission for everything. My respect for the teachers grew 100 folds. My God what patience is required.

The setting was unfamiliar.. a couple of kids started crying for their mommies..

I realized that if 1 kid is hungry, all get hungry..
If 1 kid cries for his / her mommy.. they all cry..
If they are given cakes to eat, all of them want the cherried one.
If 1 has to go to the toilet … all others suddenly feel the urge to go JUST now!
It was soooo much fun with them all. I learnt all their names, sang songs to them, practised their dance steps with them. Fed them all biscuits n chocolates. Some parents had not sent an extra set of clothes or even the water bottle. It was a practise session for 5 hours. How can u send ur kid without even a water bottle??? The teachers already had their hands full.. trying to keep all kids occupied and organised at the same time. Lil P was showing off her mommy to each kid.. proudly saying.. my mommy. my mommy. It was soo cute. This was the practise session.

On the actual annual day, The teachers were amazing. The way they handled each kid.. coaxing them to wear their costume, wiping the tears, giving all of them a hug.. I felt that the teacher was the mother there. I helped the kids get into their costumes, applied light makeup. They all looked like little dolls. I could feel the excitement and the apprehensions. These little 3 year olds,  1st time on the stage.. 2 months of practise.. all for that 5 min glory. I was soo glad I got a chance to be a part of it!

Have a look 🙂

Oh my God…its the most amazingly cute video I have seen in ages…I cant believe Lil’P and her friends at this age can manage to actually sway to the rhythm remember such steps and execute them on stage…What a great experience….It reminds me of the days when we used to help Ma out with her school annual days :):) Thanks for the video ya…i felt so good after seeing it 🙂

    @swaram: it was amazing swaram. i always thot i shud leave my job n go join her school. but its much more hard work than I had imagined!! Its tough being a mother to 1 kid.. imagine being a mother to 20 kids & not losing ur cool!

    @lostworld: Yup! that was the cutest.. the kids stopped dancing to look at the screen.. some adjusted theie hats n pants midway. 1 kid in the middle of the skit said.. “can u see ur mommy” .. another said” stand up vikram” .. Gosh!! all parents were laughing soooo much.
