Ira had a fancy dress competition in her school today. I cut out a periwinkle from the cardboard and painted it pink! I also cut out leaves and made it look as attractive as i could for a 3 year old. She was very excited about the entire process till last night. This morning she got cold feet and didn't want to go to school. Once we were at the school, she didn't want to wear her flower.....well, after a lot of convincing and watching a few performances she finally agreed to go to the stage. My husband has written a verse on periwinkle which she was supposed to sing and enact. She did sing.......but that was that....and the loudest was her 'Thank you " :).
Well, all in all, whatever she did, she received the first place.....so we both are happy.
P.S - while trying to get her to the stage i promised all sorts of bribes.....chocolates, gifts....she made me get everything on the way home. I tried to restrict all the demands but she said she did as she was told and it was now 'my turn to keep the promise'! :)
