Tiny Dancer

Look at this little ballerina!

Isn’t she just the cutest thing?

Other than drop off and pick up at preschool, I’ve never really seen Charlotte in a class setting.

At home and around family and friends, Charlotte is a spunky little chatterbox with more attitude than she knows what to do with.

In ballet class, she was totally different.  Charlotte was quiet and reserved.  She stood back and let others be line leaders while she watched what those in front of her were doing.  When it was her turn, the look of concentration and determination on her face was something I hadn’t seen before.  And then she would look at me every once in a while for a thumbs up.

(I didn’t see anyone else taking pictures during class, so I’m not really sure if I was supposed to take any, but I did manage to get a few!)

Pregnancy hormones got the best of this mommy as I was holding back the tears the entire class.  I was so proud of Charlotte for not only listening and following directions, but also for trying her hardest and concentrating on learning to do the steps and moves the correct way.

I’m hoping that my sweet girl keeps up that determination and uses it to conquer all of her dreams.

Awww! She's adorable! Isn't dance class the best? I swear, nothing makes me happier than watching my little girl in dance class. You have to read my post, 'Thoughts On Becoming a Dance Mom.' http://www.makeyourowndamndinner.com/2013/05/thoughts-on-becoming-dance-mom.html

What a beautiful little ballerina!

Oh, I sure hope Taylor wants to take dance lessons. I never got to, so I'll be the first to admit this would be a lifelong dream for me too!
