Mya decided that she wanted to do ballet back in the fall. I thought for sure, she would give it a try and be ready to quit after a month. She’s never been a girly girl. She’s not the most graceful girl. And she’d rather be spending her time outside exploring in the dirt and woods. I was pleasantly surprised that she actually liked ballet and has stuck with it up until now. Now her recital will be coming up and I am so proud of her! She looks like she is having so much fun in class and she really gives it everything she’s got. I took ballet one year as a child and dance classes in college. I always dreamed of being a dancer, but our family couldn’t ever really afford dance classes. I always hoped I would have a daughter that would want to take dance classes. Mya has already said that she wants to do soccer in the fall, but I’m so glad that she gave it a really good shot! I put makeup on her today since they were doing pictures at the dance studio. I did her hair and after her makeup, told her to go look in the mirror. I wished so much that I had had my camera then because the smile on her face was like nothing I have ever seen in her. She just kept staring at herself and came back and told me she couldn’t believe how beautiful she looked. She looked so grown up! Did I cry watching her have her pictures taken at the studio? Me?! Noooo……okay, maybe a little. hehe Will I make it through the recital without making a fool out of myself? Probably not! I love this girl!
