Yes, I guess I am a stage mom
Well, not exactly! This past week my kids have been working hard to get ready for their big night of dancing for the season. THE dance recital.
At last year's recital, my little petunia was two and a half and fussed the whole second half of the show saying, "Is it my turn now? I want to dance on the big stage!" So over the summer we worked on the potty training and signed her up.
Well, now we know, the stage is her power button. Once she walked on, she came alive! It was so cute!
It seemed as if when she didn't know what came next, she made up her own moves and kept right on going! I loved it.
That was the FIRST number!

I am so proud of her! She did so well.
My big girl is a little pro at recitals now. This is her third year. She was fabulous. She practiced all on her own at home and knew all the moves. She decided that next year she doesn't want to do ballet and tap, she's going to try out jazz. I think she will do wonderful! (Umm, as any stage mom would, right?)
These are all during dress rehearsal. That's the only time we can go up to the stage and take pictures.
Each year during the 5-6 year old numbers, they choose one (ballet or tap) to be a "Daddy/Daughter" dance. This year they chose tap and it was an event to remember!
Yes, that is...THE SPRINKLER! The instructors have a great sense of humor!
Auntie Janine was here for the big performance!
Another year under our belts. We are ready to go and frolic on some beaches and have a fun summer! I am sure it won't be without some dressing up and dancing along the way!
I am the mom of two of the sassiest little girls ever and married to one hot tamale. I love to be creative. I like to sew, cook, take pictures and try new crafty things. I love hot tea, french fries and sweet little kisses from my girls. My life is great and very richly blessed. I started this blog so that family living far away could keep up with our goings on and feel close to us.
