You might remember that last year, Chloe and Connor had competing Christmas programs. This year, Connor doesn't have one at all and Chloe's was moved to daytime. The one daytime in the month of December that I had trouble getting away from work. I was able to attend just the half hour program, but fortunately Mom and Chip were able to stay for the special holiday luncheon. Even better, Mom decided to spirit Chloe away for a fun afternoon of shopping and playing at Grammy's house when the luncheon was over.
I was so glad that Chloe got to leave, because Connor has had many cool opportunities for me to take him home early (class party, field trip, etc) and Chloe almost never does. The sad part is, she wouldn't have been disappointed if she'd had to stay at school, because she doesn't even expect it at this point. I wonder if that's because she isn't as needy as Connor, or if it's because she's the second child so she's gotten the short end of the stick most of her life?
first one, she cried in my lap rather than participating. For the second one, she sang and danced like a pro. How would it go this year? She started off a little apprehensive.
Stay tuned for the next edition of "Chockleys On Stage" when Connor performs in the African American History program next February.
