This year I played Snow White. If you know me, you know how I felt about this.
It was awesome.
Some highlights of the day:
- I'm signing several autographs for kids when I overhear two adults (looked like a mom and grandmother), who thought I wasn't listening, say, "She looks JUST like her. It's amazing."
- Two kindergarteners from my school showed up together and said, "Hi Miss Lafferre! You look just like Snow White!"
- My friend Summer's kids were there (Summer teaches at my school and she's also the JL president this year) and I told her little girl that she had to keep my secret at school. That everyone at school knows I'm Miss Lafferre, but she has to keep my secret that I'm really Snow White.
I have to say that I had a conversation with one little girl that is probably in the top five conversations of my life. Here it is:
Girl (looked to be about 6-7 maybe?): It was not nice that that woman tried to poison you!
Me: I know! And she was my stepmother too!
Me: Yes! But it all worked out in the end.
Girl: Yes, and you found a prince too!
Me: I did! It's because good always wins. Don't forget that!

So this was pretty much one of the greatest days ever.
