Today was the much anticipated Winter Gala at daycare, with performances by the Ones, Twos, Threes, Fours, and Fives. Sabrina made her theatrical debut as a member of the Ones with a resounding rendition of "If You're Happy and You Know It". Now admittedly the production was less Andrew Lloyd Webber and more Toddlers on the Loose, but daycare's theatre budget is probably a little below Broadway standards. But those little kids put their hearts into it, when they were paying attention. They really made me believe they were happy, and they knew it. And since clapping hands is a skill Sabrina mastered over a year ago, it's a role she was born to play. I have to say, I was hoping for something a little more along the lines of the "When you're a Jet" dance scene from West Side Story or at least a snippet of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat, but maybe that was a little above the level of the other children. But hey, even Beyonce had to be a toddler once right?
