In early June, I performed in my first ever dance recital! My little Creative Movement class had been working for months on our "Ballet Kitty" routine, and we were all so excited to get to show off our moves.
Mommy and Daddy were a little worried about how I would do in the performance (especially since my excitement about going to my weekly dance class had seriously been waning in the weeks leading up to the recital)...
but it turns out they were worried for nothing!
I loved dressing in my costume, having my hair done up with hairspray and gel (products Mommy had never used on my hair before), and getting to wear real makeup! All the post-recital goodies I got from my family were nice, too.
In fact, I've already set my sights on the 2013 recital where I'll get to do it all over again.
(In case you are wondering, Elliot will not be joining me in the realm of dance. During the opening number of the recital Mommy whispered to Daddy that she thought it'd be great to have him take hip-hop classes. She was quickly shot down.)
