Arkie Mama: My son, the closet ham

The E-man, while friendly and outgoing, has this thing about going onstage for any sort of school performance. At first, he’ll stand there, with this skittish expression on his face and his fingers in his mouth. Then, halfway through, he morphs into this little comedien, playing to the audience for laughs.

I present evidence from the 2008 Christmas program:

I will not sing.

I will not sing.

But I will entertain.

But I will entertain.

So today was the preschool’s grandparent luncheon.  All of the E-man’s grandparents live in Texas, so Hubs and I filled in as substitutes.

Little man ignores the camera.

Little man ignores the camera.

After lunch, the kids put on a short program.

The E-man at first hid behind the row of singing children.

Not only will he not partcipate, he clearly has no appreciation for his classmates' efforts.

Not only will he not partcipate, he clearly has no appreciation for his classmates' efforts.

I blinked and then saw this:

And he started dancing. Like me.

And he started dancing. Like me.
