Cicily's school was having a pajama day with a cute story time event back at the school in the evening. Cicily was a little skeptical of wearing pajamas to school, but agreed to it. She enjoyed going to school and wearing her pjs like so many other 4th graders and kids at her school. So when it came time to go to the story time in the evening, I asked her if she'd like to take a Minnie Mouse stuffed animal and she gave me a skeptical no look. Sophie (1st grade) assured Cicily that EVERYONE was bringing a stuffed animal to the story time so Cicily finally caved and wanted to bring a Minnie along. She's happily holding her Minnie on her lap as we wheel in to her classroom. Her teacher starts reading her story to all the kids and parents gathered and Cicily starts looking around the room. Then Cicily stealthily and very carefully (she's not very capable of being careful, so this was unusual) moves her Minnie from her lap onto mine with her face forward looking all cool like nothings happening. She saw nobody else her age had a stuffed animal and quietly got rid of hers! It was hilarious!!
Also Cicily's getting more and more into the "big" rides at Disneyland. She tried out and loved Space Mountain this time!
Cicily inspires her big sister Maya to brave one of the "big rides" Thunder Mtn.
But in true tween fashion, she can't give up her excitement at the little kid rides either as she demonstrated by giddily pointing to them as we walked by.
She doesn't look too happy here, but I promise just before the pic she was laughing with delight!!
