Emma was doing well in her parade line until she saw me. There is something about me showing up to her school events that sets her off every time and sure enough, she started crying. Luckily, she was able to get herself back under control quickly and even posed for some good pictures. These are often hard to come by with Emma so I was thrilled that she was actually smiling.
