My daughter and her husband decided that it might be fun for their son to be in it. He LOVES other children and has the most outgoing personality that I have ever seen in a child. They decided that we would see how he felt the day of the pageant and if he wasn't sick or tired from having a bad night then we would go. Also, when we would get to the mall, if it seemed to be too much for him then we would leave.
The day came and he was as happy as ever. They put him in his outfit from Christmas and off we went. When we got to the mall we walked around for a bit and he loved watching all the kids that had entered in it. He was just having a blast. He was in the 4th group to come up to the stage. When it was his turn to go on the stage he was a little shy at first but after about 10 seconds his personality really showed. He waved at each judge and starting waving to the whole crowd. Then he started blowing kisses while twirling around. He was just having so much fun being the center of attention. His father and I were standing behind the judges because we thought maybe it would help him see us and wave at us, but he didn't even notice we were there!!
