Scene: yesterday Layla (who is 3) and I were walking down by the waterfront here in Toronto and in one of the parks is little stage on top of this grass mound. Of course my daughter is this little performer and she love to sing and dance on this little stage. However this time they where doing a film shoot along the waterfront and the film crew were using the stage.
Layla: "Mama I wanna sing my ABC on the stage"
Me: "Sorry sweetie they are making a movie there and we aren't allowed on the stage right now"
Layla "A MOVIE!"
Me: "Yup, so next we come down you can sing on the stage"
Layla (in a very sad voice): "But mama I wanna sing my ABCs, maybe I go on the stage and sing my ABC's in the movie?"
So we came to a compromise - Layla performed her ABC's on the platform of the streetcar stop as we waited to take transit home. OH what a kid - Can't wait to see her in some school performances
