January 9, 2018 | Being a dancer most of my life, I was so excited for E to attend her first ballet class. We did a low-commitment, community center “session” just to give it a try, and I used her gymnastic leotard with a new skirt/ballet shoes from Target (used regular tights, oops). She was acting pretty excited, and I was only a little worried that she wouldn’t want to because it’s after a full day of preschool. But she ran in with the amazing teacher, and followed directions so well! I’m the weird-o mom who brought her real camera to shoot through the door during class — while carefully avoiding too much hovering — and made a dance bag from my fave photo below…!
