Tutu Cute - Big Sister's Ballet Debut

I had talked it over with a couple other moms and we all agreed... tonight would be entertaining, yes.... interesting, yes.... but prima ballerinas....
.....we doubted we'd see. We might have been mostly right, but what a surprise!

When I ask Big Sis to see what she learned in ballet for the week, she usually gives me a vocabulary word (sometimes as impressive as arabesque!) and can usually demonstrate it. As far as stringing together more than 1 (maybe 2!) moves.... that happens about as often as I've been jogging in the last couple wks (never!!)

This is Big Sis's bff.... they're the tallest girls in their class and when they get together they are SILLY! Which is maybe why the ballet teacher put them on opposite ends of the 'stage' for the recital? ;)

But, wow! I was so proud! Big Sis paid attention and was one of the best little dancers! Her toes were pointed, she was on beat (mostly).... I almost got teary!! My little ballerina is growing up!

Here's a little Under the Sea action ;)

Each ballerina did her 'ballet walk' around the room by herself. My ballerina was definitely not one of the shy ones!

A class full of pretty girls

For having a momma who never took ballet, Big Sis was impressive! And for being the momma who never took ballet... I'm hooked! Tonight was so fun! :)

That's darling! My aunt owned a dance studio and I was dancing starting at three. So many good memories!

How adorable! Little Miss M doesn't have her recital until the spring and I can't wait. This Saturday is 'watch day'. I actually get to see what I have been paying for all these months.

She looks adorable!!!!

Thank you for making me smile today!

Confession: I'm still a little sad that this next baby is not another boy. Seeing this post and thinking back on how I adored ballet as a child made me feel a little giddy to have the opportunity to experience it again in a different way with my daughter - if she wants to, of course.
