Haiku Friday: the petite edition

Haiku Friday

In the air, she's tall.
In real life, it's obvious:
My baby's a shrimp.



School musical. Seen it two nights in a row now, with closing night tonight (yes, I'll be seeing that too). Miss Roo is in the chorus -- and suitably adorable. I'll have more to say on this later.

For now? All I have to say is this:

Omigod, she's short!

i say, OMG, where'd they get all those amazon girls?

Melissa said...

I agree with both.

And where did they get the recycled prom dresses? :)

Joyce said...

Sweet kid (likes to sing like her mom?). :)

Aoj & The Lurchers said...

But I bet she packs a lot of personality in!

Ditto, ditto, ditto. Happy Friday!

School musicals were always such fun. I was always one of the stage hands in the back freaking out when something would get lost or misplaced. Ahhh, the good old days...

Nothing wrong with short. Besides, I think those other girls are just freakishly tall. Maybe they have a circus career ahead of them:oP

Okay, maybe that was a little too hostile. I've been teased my whole life for being short. Usually not in a mean way, but once in a while I need to strike back. Apparently at unwitting young middle school girls.

OMG!!! She is absolutely beautiful! What a cutie!
I was short like that when I was in grade school too. :)

She might be shorter than the rest, but she's the most BEAUTIFUL!

Perhaps short but she looks sassy and that's never a bad thing. She's beautiful.

Happy Friday, Janet!

Jenni said...

Short is not a bad thing. Especially on a girl.

People tend to be protective of the little ones.

Head Gaggler said...

Great outfits. Yay for her in the play.

Bren said...

Tallness is overrated!!!!!!!!!!!

I hear the best things come in small packages!

anglophilefootballfanatic said...

She can pack a punch in that petite. I'm petite & totally okay with that!

Burgh Baby's Mom said...

I'm pretty sure she could take on the whole lot of them and win. Never mess with the short kids, they can kick your butt.

tumblewords said...
