Social Retardation

"Minastics" was a good, but painful, time. Good for Frankie, who enjoyed herself immensely, but painful for me, who had to sit idly by as my child repeatedly put herself first in line for everything. Not only did she stand at the front of the line of EVERY ACTIVITY, but when she completed the task, she would circle back and RETURN to the front of the line. The instructors would gently tell her to go to the back of the line and she would dutifully turn, go a couple of kids down the line and reinsert herself (see picture above, having been instructed to go to back of the line, OH THERE SHE IS AGAIN). I am sure the teachers were thinking "Boy, this little girl in the pink shirt keeps turning up like a bad penny."
