you forgot about ballet again mom!!!

For Isabelle’s 3rd birthday our gift to her was to get her into ballet classes.  Something she has been asking to do for a while now.

Me, working hard on my Mother of the Year Award, kept forgetting to call and get her into a class.  The poor thing got to the point where every night before bed she would say, “You forgot about ballet again Mom!!!”  Awesome feeling right there 🙁
After feeling like THE WORST mother in the world, I finally got my rear in gear and got her in.

The first half of the class they teach the girls tap, then ballet and tumbling.  Getting to wear her “clickity-clack shoes”, as she calls them, was the icing on the cake!  I got such a kick out of watching her bounce around with the biggest grin on her face 🙂
Needless to say, she L-O-V-E-D it.

    My girl did dance from age 2 til 5 – she quit this year and I almost cried. There's nothing sweeter than little girl in a leotard and tutu!

    I think this is the prettiest ballerina I have seen in a long while. Clickety clack. Love it.

    At the 11th hour a miracle has happened. I knew it would 🙂 He is ever faithful. Details will follow soon. Thank you for your encouraging friendship.

    I have such fond memories of doing dance when I was growing up – I started with ballet and tap and then when I got older I did jazz too. It was so much fun and I can still remember some of the routines (a little bit). Your little girl is adorable in her ballet gear.

    So stinking cute. You aren't the worst mom in the world—I highly doubt she will remember later on in life that you forgot to sign her up for classes. 🙂

    How sweet is she?! I used to love ballet when I was her age and we have several embarassing videos of me prancing around thinking I knew what I was doing. I bet you have the best time watching her dance!
