Next was the group picture, and oh my word...his class has 10 kids in it and you should've seen them trying to get them all to cooperate for the picture. Herding cats? Is that the phrase? I was so proud that Manny stood there quietly waiting. I looked over at one point and he was HOLDING HANDS with the little girl next to him!! I couldn't get over it. They held hands for at least a few minutes and I'm not going to share the crazy mom flash-forward moments
wedding day that went through my head .
Needless to say, one minute he was hand holding with this sweet girl and the next moment? He had dropped to the ground and was flailing around like he was being stabbed with needles. NO clue what triggered it - probably my previous proud moment that he wasn't acting a fool. His teacher was like, "Wow, I've never seen him do this!" To which I didn't know to be proud or ashamed. I mean, I'm glad he doesn't normally act like that at school but man...there's nothing like not being able to calm down your raging toddler. That being said...I have no group picture to show because we left. I didn't want to hold things up and I wasn't able to
bribe reason with him to get him to cooperate for the picture. Disciplining in public places is so hard for me at this age. But that's a whole different bag of issues. Love this kid and his strong spirit...we're too much alike!! :)
