Dance recitals. I never remembered how long those things last. We went to a noon recital today and got done around 3. Three hours. I must say though, it was very entertaining. First the little kids. They all stand up there staring at their teacher who is in front of the stage giving them cues of what to do. Some girls turn around and stare at the set, and forget to dance. Others really get into their moves. Being the proud mom that I am, I was so happy to see Bridget up there, and not freeze on stage like I would have. (I was shaking with nerves just getting her ready in her costume.) There were some really good dancers as well. I love "So You Think You Can Dance" so enjoyed watching people that appeared to know what they were doing.
Gabbie, for the most part was a good girl. My dad forgot to save a seat for my sister, so Gabbie lost her seat and had to sit on my lap. Numb legs. At first she loved watching "The Princesses". Since it was nap time, she did get cranky and restless at the end, but what a good sister to sit through that.
After the recital, Bridget was more excited to get her balloon and flower. I think she finally felt like a big girl. I asked her if she was scared up there on the stage she said without hesitation, "Nope!" She is so her father's daughter!
