Reluctant Dancer

reluctant dancer round one At the PowWow on Saturday night, I observed one of the smallest dancers.  I am not sure if this reluctant dancer is a little boy or a little girl.  The first time they danced around the circle was fine and dandy. Note the Spiderman slippers..too cute!

Reluctant dancer the meltdown Then he/she pitched a fit. It was a total meltdown.  The parent in me was embarrassed for the Dad, the Grandmother in me was just charmed by a child showing his/her true feelings.

The Dad was patient.

  3. That is the cutest little Pow-Wower I've ever laid eyes on. How sweet is that! I can't imagine what a day it was for that little one, I'd probably have myself a meltdown too! Heeeheheh!

    Have a terrific day Connie!

  4. Isn't it funny how our view of childlike behavior shifts when we become grandparents? And not just for our own g-kids....

  7. Thanks for the wonderful Pow Wow pictures. The Cherokee from this area host an inter-tribal Pow Wow every year but it is very far away indeed. Our son and I went once. We loved it. Especially the dance honoring the military veterans.

  9. Connie, oh, am I ever glad I stopped by today. This little pictorial story is truly priceless. I didn't see any meltdowns at the powwow I attended back in July, but this brought back wonderful memories of that day. I think it's a little boy, based on the regalia, which is similar to his father's.
