Those are not the words you want to hear coming from your son’s teacher at pick-up. Because 9 times out of 10 it isn’t going to be followed by something good.
Fortunately, this was the other 1 time.
Besh has had a great time at his new school, don’t get me wrong. But he is 5 and there’s bound to be things to work on. We’ve had our share of being over excited and listening less than necessary, but ultimately it’s been a good transition.
Still, when you hear those words all parents will do that slight intake of breathe. I did it just hearing second hand. But the rest rocked.
What Besh was doing, and still is doing, is conducting daily singing and dancing shows for some of the upper elementary school kids (a few years older than him). It’s a mix of songs from Les Mis, Bruno Mars, and Black Eyed Peas. And I imagine the lyrics are a good 60% accurate. But it’s pretty funny that he’s been doing it every day. He hides behind bushes, announces the show, then comes out while several kids watch him sing and dance. Appropriate that we find out this week as tonight he and Mommy and Nonni are at the So You Think You Can Dance tour. Hopefully he stays off the stage tonight.
Besh’s performing has apparently inspired some of the other kids to also sing or dance. I can only imagine.
Clearly he gets this from his mother.
