This mommy missed another school activity. Sad. But I was glad to see the photos her dad took, and was even gladder that she seemed to have fun. I bought the Egyptian get-up she was wearing just before I left for overseas knowing that the United Nations celebration is just around the corner. Last year, she donned a Mexican outfit. This time, given a free hand, we wanted an edgier garb so we settled for this. I didn’t want the usual Japanese kimono or the Chinese cheongsam readily available at the malls so I was glad to find this. Did you think black is bit much for a kid? She looks great! Her hair was a little disheveled but pretty nonetheless (stage mommy alert!). Plus, her flag is all wrong but the dad couldn’t find Egypt in the bookstores. But I don’t think anybody noticed.
Here is a video of their production number:
