Procrastination, Amnesia & then procrastination again....

This is a Tag I had received ages and ages ago from Naperville Mom of Ponderings of a Porcupine. Kept pushing it to the back of the cybershelf and then conveniently forgot all about it!

A fews days ago, a blogpost by a co-blogger regarding the same tag restored my amnesiac memory. Well, the chronic procrastinator that I am, again considerable time was spent dilly-dallying ..and now finally, here I am with the Tag...

The TAG is : A story revolving around the 6th Picture of the 6 Folder in my (digital) Photo-Basket ....

A down-in-the-dumps AD with tears streaking down her cheeks as her friends look on ....

On the morning of her Playschool's Annual Day, the excited kid was all eager to go to school and 'perform'. But the moment she entered the school gates, and saw the deluge of parents and grandparents waiting at the Shamiana for the programme to begin, my 'lion-indoors-but-timid-mouse-outdoors' AD burst out into tears and clung on to me, panicstricken....As I took her to their classroom which had her friends, teachers and ayahs 'waiting in the wings', she cooled down considerably. The little friends, wiped a tear or two and tried their best to cheer her up! It was such an amazing sight to see these three yrs somethings displaying such affection and camaraderie....I had my camera with me and clicked!
Of the many lovable pics clicked that morning, the above is the 6th Pic of the 6th Folder in my (Digital) PhotoBasket!
I am supposed to tag 6 persons....but I'll keep it open to ALL!
Whoever takes it up, do drop a line at my comment box so that I can stop by at your Blog to see your 6th Pic in your 6th Photo Folder!!

Ohh thats a sweet little girl you have. My son is exactly like this when it comes to performances, he just refuses to go to the stage. Promptly after the show is over and we are home he will do the piece with a flourish at home. Makes me go completely crazy.

Your daughter is very sweet!! I am sure when she will grow up and give the big performance these are the days which will become most memorable!!

haha! So cute! And totally reasonable for a 3 year old to be scared of so many scary(!) grownups!! I like the expressions of her friends half-amused and half-concerned!!

Reflections said...

Awwww....she's sho sweet!!!!

Did she finally go up on stage???

U knw I suffer from severe stage-fright & so never even encourage my children in tht direction..sort of I cant bear to see my child go there & experience tht paralysing fear I did & do:-(

But I knw the correct thing is to encourage...recently my daughter wanted to join Spelling bee competition & I quietly filled up the forms & now, more than her I'm on tenderhooks;-P.

This is such an Awwww... moment. :D

SGD said...

Thanks everyone...

Yes she went on stage...very reluctantly (almost had to be pushed by the teachers)...
About 10 kids had to sing an alphabet song!!
She started off with a glum look and midway forgot she had been upset...when she came down she was all chirpy chatty!!! Kids!!!!

Sucharita Sarkar said...

Oh, kids will be kids, won't they? And your little angel is absolutely adorable, even with the tears...
