Some of you may remember Sophie's first dance recital. She left the dancing up to the others and spent the number looking shy and afraid on that big stage.
That was the Holiday show, and in the life of a 3 year old, 5 months can make a world of difference. We've been slowly preparing her for her big, dance class finale at the Lexington Opera House.
Yesterday was the dress rehearsal for the show on Saturday. As we sat in the audience watching the other groups perform, she sat closer and closer to me before finally crawling into my lap.
"Are you nervous?" I asked.
"Are you excited?" I asked.
"Are you going to dance?" I asked.
Please excuse the first 30 seconds of darkness before the dancing gets started.
She wasn't always a big fan of dance class, but she came through in the end. I'm such a proud mama.
