Happy Feet

"How did Nutcracker rehearsal go?"
[Jungle Boy] "OK"
[Drama Girl] "He got another part."
"Did you get another part? Really?"
"[Drama Girl] "It's another soldier part I think."
"Can you tell me about it Jungle Boy?"
"Congratulations anyway. Tell me when you're ready."

later. . .
[Jungle Boy] "Can we watch 'Happy Feet?'"
"You haven't watched that in a long time. Sure. TV turnoff week is over."
"I got another understudy part. The head soldier. I come out first. And I get to shoot the mouse! And all the soldiers have to salute me!"
"That sounds so cool. I'm glad you're enjoying it."

And later it hit me - Happy Feet. A story about a misunderstood kid who just loves to dance.

8 people stopped folding laundry to write:

Bless him! Maybe misunderstood, but passionate about what he enjoys. Smacks of success, fulfillment and long-term happiness if you ask me. :)

You're a good Mama, Three Under.

They may not speak when you want them to, but if you listen when they're ready to speak, you learn a lot.
