This morning Cricket’s class had their turn singing during our preschool’s weekly chapel, meaning Ryan and I were able to peek in on her world. Cricket, as expected, was in her typical self, participating in only the exciting moments, chanting “MA-DE-LINE! MA-DE-LINE!” for her friend during the usually-silent birthday blessings, and generally just being her silly, loud self. When it was time for the class to sing, Cricket stood just far enough to the side to make it appear as if she had her own solo. I was not surprised, because probably in her mind everyone was there to see her sing (with her classmates as backup). No one puts Cricket in the corner!
Have I mentioned that I love this big personality we have in our family? Every day I’m reminded that I’m just a sidekick in The Cricket Show. ;)
