Tiny dancer, part deux

It seems so hard to believe that it’s been nearly 10 months since our first ballet class. From the minute I was having a girl, I was ecstatic for many reasons…..one of them was picturing her in dance class, and up on the stage in her first recital, dressed to the nines. That dream is coming to life this weekend. I nearly broke down and cried when she got all dressed up in her costume this morning to go to dress rehearsal. My baby girl, my precious daughter, my partner in shoe shopping crime……in her first ballet recital. I know, it may seem silly, but I just wanted to pick her up and squish her. In my world of mostly men, I have one saving Grace……

We went to see Cars after rehearsal, a reward for them behaving (AMEN!) yesterday and this morning, then to lunch at a local burger joint (So much for eating “healthy” today, and no time for exercise either! Ah well…guess this is my “cheat day”). I think I’m more nervous for tonight than she is. We were prepped to not expect them to do much. She got most of the steps, a few beats behind, and had a huge smile on her face. We’ll see how the actual shows tonight and tomorrow afternoon go. Wish her luck! Oh, and I have to say I agree with Karri’s review of Cars. It was funny and cute, but pixar has definitely done better.
