I think that if I didnt get Charlotte into a dance class, there would have been major upheaval. Why would I think this? Only for the fact that when I last dropped Emma off at Ballet, Charlotte ran into the middle of the floor plopped down in protest & refused to leave screaming "MY BALLET, MY BALLET."
Thank you to the mom witnesses who whispered, "Um.... have you ever considered Kinderdance?" Kinder what? One phone call later & Charlotte has a PURPOSE for wearing the tutu!! (although you notice she didnt wear one here??? becaues she wanted to be like her sisters - and they dont wear tutu's!! Remember, this is SERIOUS business for this little girl!)
I dont think I have seen anything cuter (but I might have said that 4 years ago when I watched Emma in her 1st class in Eugene...). But for Charlotte & her appreciation for the love of movement, I have a different appreciation. I couldnt stop tearing up the entire time, I choked them back though & just snapped pictures from behind the glass wall like a classic mom stalker! :) The flash gave me away & Charlotte whipped her head around to see me & started waving emphatically! Oh that sweet girl!
Ellie asked if she had to go to school, "I want to watch Charlotte in her class!" So when I told Emma & Ellie that Charlotte has her OWN recital (becaues they are in one themselves), they were very excited! What a crack up - Charlotte in a recital, it makes me smile & shake my head at the antics that could arise at that little gathering :) Stay tuned - its in June!
FYI - while i am typing this, my 3 little sweeties are running around the downstairs & are playing the 2 little pigs & the big bad wolf. But it seems they are changing the story around a bit, i hear them saying, "Charlotte you are the big bad pig!" Yet there is a Big Bad Wolf too! "RUN! RUN CHARLOTTE, RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!" Ellie is telling her :) hahaha!!
