The boys participated in their school's first ever 1st-3rd grade choir this year (I say first ever... first time its been offered since we've been there, that is).
Despite Alexander having asked me to sign him up for choir, both boys have hated it since Day 1. They came home from their first practice, and announced they were quitting.
Not so fast, I explained. They needed to give it more of a chance.
Well, by the time I was satisfied they had given it enough of a chance, they had parts.
And despite their very good reasons for wanting to quit choir (not enough boys... in fact, Ryan was the only first grade boy)...
Mean Safety Mommy made them stick it out, since at this point, they were committed.
Ryan even started faking being sick to get out of choir practice.
So you can imagine their excitement when they learned they would have to do three performances on performance days: for the parents in the evening, and two during school for all the grades.
I didn't know WHAT to expect when we showed up for their show two weeks ago.
Turns out, it was very cute, and they did a great job.
And my kids think I was the mean parent!!
