He was dancing and singing and doing the choreography - so precious! Then...it happened. I am not sure what "it" is but "it" happened and he just shut down. Lucky for David, he was next to a friend that is taller than him and he chose behind her as his hiding place. The sweet girl kept TRYING to move out from in front of him but he kept following her. David's partner nicely tried to encourage him to keep on with the movements but David was having none of it. Here is a picture of David hiding...
With a few songs to go, David's class came off of the stage to surround the audience for a song....unfortunately David spotted his Jaja and jumped into his arms. Jaja had NO idea that David still had songs to participate in but I was already on my way to talk to David when it happened so I was able to get him back into position. His terrific teacher came over and talked to him and between her bribe of a GIANT chocolate bar and my bribe of a new Hexbug, David sucked it up and gave the performance of his life for the last few songs. He sang, he danced, he smiled - it was wonderful!
So, it took a little bit of effort, but for the first time, David got back up and finished the show after hitting his stopping point. I have great hopes that by this time next year, he will be able to make it through the whole show without breaking down!

I started Weight Watchers yesterday and they have changed things a little so my official first goal with WW and myself is -12.1 lbs. I actually like that the percentage is smaller now - it will give me a quicker reinforcement! I have already had my first temptation - I went to Denny's for breakfast with a friend this morning. I usually will order the Grand Slam with pancakes, bacon, hash browns, and eggs...and eat it all with amazing amounts of syrup (gee, I wonder why I need to lose weight...). I obviously couldn't order THAT and I know myself and my love for syrup so I couldn't order pancakes at all. So, I did a little research BEFORE going to the restaraunt and was able to have bacon, 2 eggs, and a cup of fruit - totally filling and delicious for waaaaay fewer points! We are going out to dinner tonight too, to celebrate David's Spring Program performance (cause I have faith that there WILL be cause to celebrate) so I am about to plan ahead for that too. Not as easy as going and ordering whatever I want, but much healthier and using my brain IS a good thing after all.

My next post is going to be on a chapter in the book called "Loving Daughters" - not sure when I will post it but I got some good stuff out of it and, of course, questions as well.
