Some of you may remember last year's second grade musical when Noah wanted to be a cockroach instead of a bumble bee or a butterfly. This year's third grade musical was called "Star Search" and was based on outer space. The kids were instructed to dress as either the sun, the moon, a star, a comet, or a planet. Noah wanted to be a black hole. He insisted upon it and said, "Mom, all I need is an intense magnetic field!" We did the best we could. There, on stage, in all his glory, was my son, The Black Hole.
Sidenote: After the play, a little girl talked to Noah for a minute. When she walked away, he shrugged his shoulders and said, "Guess I'm a chick magnet too."
