Thank Goodness They Were Red, Like My Cheeks

Well, y'all, I didn't think anything could ever top the ballet recital nose picking incident, but oh how wrong was I.  Because tonight during our church's Christmas Eve worship service, while the Tongginator sweetly sang Angels We Have Heard on High with the other children, she decided to fix a little something that irked her.  Yes, y'all, her sensory self simply couldn't take it a moment longer, so she took matters into her own hands.

Y'all, her seven-year-old self lifted up her dress - waist high - and yanked three times on each leg to hike up her tights before dropping the skirt so that it fell oh-so-demurely to her knees.  Laughter rocked through the congregation, but - bless her little heart - she didn't even realize it was because of her.  Of course the husband and I did.  I would have sunk through the floor, but I was holding Squirt on my lap.

Ah, well, it could have been worse.

Her tights could have been white instead of red.

:) Did that help stop any tears you might have due to her testimonial? ('cause just reading about it in your last post made me bawl.)

Don't feel too bad, Amelia did the same thing at her holiday concert a couple weeks ago. When I motioned for her to put her dress down she dropped it, and mouthed "why?"

So modest:)

During a local performance of the Nutcracker last week there was a lull in the music....and Sophie tooted. Not a little 5 year old girl toot...an old man toot! I thought the lady in front of us was going to die laughing...Lets just say no one brought it up when we went out for ice cream after the performance was over.

Oh, to be 7. Merry Christmas!

Since it happened to you, I am finding this funny, but I have to admit, if I had been in your shoes, I would have been looking for the nearest pew to crawl under, too. :-)

But did you get video? If not - I bet someone did!

Glad she got everything situated to her satisfaction. So miserable to have your tights in a bind or sliding off!

Lottie did this at her big sister's wedding reception last weekend. She DID have on white tights and purple monkey panties:) Her sweet sensory self decided...at age 7 also I remind you...to just take them off instead of pulling them up:) Still praying the photographer wasn't anywhere near that scene!!!

I don't think I've ever commented, but I love your blog! When my son was in first grade, our good friend was an aide in his class, and kept telling me he picked his nose and how disgusting it was :-)
At the Christmas program, her daughter, also in the class, wore a lovely dress with a white top and maroon skirt. In front of the entire assembly, she lifted the white part of the dress up to her face (exposing tights and all) and gave a good hearty blow of her nose, then lowered the (then considerably less) white part of the dress and sang on - ha ha!

Nothing beats funny stories about kids in church. Here is one from us that happened when Josie was not quite 3-years old.

She was at the age where bringing her to the regular service was becoming more difficult. She wanted to talk and move around etc. During this service I kept telling her she needed to be quiet-- that this is quiet time.

She quieted.

Then came the Sermon-- all was quiet and the Rector began his sermon.

Josie stood up in the pew and yelled as loud as she could, "PIET! PIET!This is PIET TIME!"

Merry Christmas!

That sounds like something my daughter would do - no sense of modesty!

I know a little girl who was so proud of her new christmas undies that she showed them off to the entire congregation!
The beauty of it is that no one cares. Everyone laughs. No need to be embarrassed.

I just need to observe - why is it that parents are embarrassed when children do something like this? It should be - after all - the child that is embarrassed - not us....humm....just.sayin'

hugs - aus and co.
