Here she is, ladies and gentleman, contestant #1 . . .
little Mimi "Firecracker" Darby.
And now she's performing her talent -- sitting criss-cross applesauce. Whoa, and I don't think anyone was ready for this . . . she's invented a new way to sit in circle time. She calls it the "Butterfly."
Now for the interview portion of the contest. Mimi Darby, how old are you?Uh oh, she seems to be struggling a bit with the question. Let's see if she'll make it through this one.
She's counting her fingers and trying again.But wait! She's suddenly broken into her rendition of "Itsy Bitsy Spider!" I don't think anyone expected that move. She's wowed the judges with this one, folks!
Now let's have a rundown of how she has done so far:
-She only asked Mommy to stay with her one time but then quickly ran away when she discovered some puzzles.
-Mimi might be in the running for the Miss Hospitality award as she made it a point to ask everyone what they were wearing or playing with.
-There might be a penalty because she was put in time-out once for not sitting quietly and flailing her legs during circle time (AKA, kicking her new friends), BUT the judges are still deliberating since she claims she was only trying to show everyone a new dance.
-When Mommy and Mack arrived in her classroom, she immediately took us to the carpet to show us how one is to behave during Show and Tell, which will definitely give her extra points for showmanship.
The judges have finally tallied their scores, and the winner for the First Day of Preschooler who Had Absolutely So Much Fun That She Couldn't Stop Talking about It Until We Got Home and Then Took the Best Nap Ever goes to . . .
And her Mommy couldn't be prouder :)
