No Doubt

Last night I took Miss A to be registered for dance class. At first I was a bit uptight since of course she refused to stand beside me, she had to be running around through the various adjoined dance studio rooms. A slightly older girl seemed to get a kick out of her and kept tabs on her while I waited in line and then filled out the paperwork.

She is enrolled in a toddler ballet/tap combo class. I also had to pick up ballet and tap shoes and luckily they have used ones on hand to buy for a reasonable price. Trying on these shoes stopped A in her tracks. She was thrilled with the tap shoes and once they were on she stood in front of the vast wall of mirror and tapped her feet on the floor while also swaying her hips. Then she noticed a ghetto blaster and attempted to turn it on for musical accompaniment. Everyone beamed at her.

This continued when we went to the dance store to buy her tights and bodysuit. We tried the bodysuit on over her onesie and she wouldn't let us take it off. She was prancing around in her shoes. There was also a bunny rabbit about her height that was dressed as a ballerina. It spent a great deal of time as her dance partner.

The thing I couldn't figure out was when we first arrived at the studio she was saying "I wanna dance, I wanna dance." as if she knew. But I have to wonder how? I guess I don't give her enough credit. All I know is that I no longer have any doubt that I should put her into dance class. It was only a matter of time.

Oh. My. God. The cute!

Dawn, Audrey is adorable in her dance gear! You are so lucky they have a class for toddlers! I called all the dance schools here, and they won't take them til at least 2.5, but they prefer 3. Rach has been a dancing machine lately so I thought it would be perfect! So instead for activities, we will stick with her music class and swimming.

Her dance get-up is so cute!!! I can hardly wait until Leelee is past some of her shyness so she can take dance lessons. I was a tapper for ten years and loved it!

So sweet! I wished I could put Claire in again this year. - and funny about you watching Karate Kid. I enjoyed watching it with my boy the other night. - And I pity you with your little angelic poopy gal. The things us moms have to do. It's cruel. Still the best job in the world. Sabrina
