Awhile back, I wrote about moving Tootie into a new dance class that wasn’t so focused on competition and recital.
What a change!
She’s having fun, and I don’t feel like a total dork because I’m the only mom not shrieking and jumping up and down over sequined costumes. (Maybe it’s just me, but my first thoughts upon ordering costumes were along the lines of, I’m spending $75 on an outfit this kid will wear one time? And tights are $12? Are you kidding me?)
The last two classes, Moody Mom and I brought along shorts and tennis shoes and spent the time walking. Last year, I had to skip the workouts on the nights Tootie had dance, so I’m really appreciating this new opportunity for a little exercise.
Moody Mom was kind enough to snap a few pictures of Tootie. Believe me, she was nowhere nearly this engaged in her last class!
