The girl's got passion!

Sometimes the role of the little sister is being on the outside looking in.

Even though Violet knew Elora and Hailey 
were in there practicing for a skit, 
she didn't ask to join them, she just took her place on the outside. 

I'm not sure how much she could see peeking in like that, 
but she stayed there for quite a while.

Then when the play began, Violet sat mesmerized.

This was a long skit…

at least 20-30 minutes, but Violet never lost her focus.

 Totally and completely would not take her eyes off the girls and what they were doing!

After scene one, the girls INVITED her to be IN their play! 

Was this her lucky day or what. 
Whoa, this was big time news to the little 3 year old sister.  

 I was near tears watching her hurry excitedly behind the scenes, and then came back out with her Belle costume on! 
Violet went right into the serious acting mode.

She basically had 2 lines, 
"We need our pets back. Give us our pets!"
She was suppose to say that several times during the play, 
and she did. With loud voice inflection!
(Anyone wandering in our house at this point would think Violet really did lose her pets!)

She said her lines with such PASSION 
she actually had REAL TEARS. 

This alarmed Elora a little and she tried to calm 
the little actress down a bit.

I don't have guesses yet what Violet will do with her life, 
but one thing is certain, she will do it with her whole heart. 

Or I could say, don't mess with Violet!

Now that's a play I would love to have seen...hope Violets parents are writing down some of her more noteworthy sayings and doings.

This really captures Violet in a succinct way. She's a little firecrackers and feels deeply--both negatively and positively. Thanks for posting this, Mom. Great post!
