I almost woke her up...just to try them on!

Have I lost my mind? Has vacation made me soft?

I seriously almost woke Lily up to try on her new ballet and tap apparel/shoes.


I had gone out shopping for them and when I returned Jerry had already gotten the girls to bed. Normally I'd be thrilled, but I was so anxious to see my little ballerina.

Ballet starts in two weeks, a precious gift from Memmy and Paw. I think Mama is most excited though.

Due to our little potty issues, we sat out from ballet the last year and a half.

Here she is at her December '07 recital as a brand new 3 year old.

If you have two minutes, watch the youtube. It will give you a good laugh. (I'm not the voice oohing and awing in the background, I was crying quietly!)


They fit! Someone else was excited to try them on too. Can you guess who?

Next year, sweet Jade, next year. She'll be starting tumbling in September...those outfits just aren't as cute though. Of course I'm sure they'll still make my photo happy blog.

And whose great idea was it to put those little ties on the ballet slippers? I see no purpose for them and they are already driving me nuts. It is impossible to keep them tied.

Her teacher may just have to overlook a big glob of hot glue on them...that's what I'm considering.

A very sweet post. Alise starts back to dance after Labor Day. I've got to get new shoes, but I think we're ok on leotards, tights, and skirts! In Alise's class, the teachers ask that we tuck in the ties on the ballet shoes. I'm not quite sure what their purpose is, either, but tucking them in seems to work for us.

She's so adorable! I cry at those kinds of things too. And she looked like the leader, knowing the routine really well! What a sweet memory for you and your family!

Oh my gosh! That is sooooo cute! I hope our little girl is as darling as the two of yours!!! I will have to show Conner that video when he wakes up from his nap!

Wilson Family said...

Conner watched it multiple times... and he said "Lily Pad is the silliest thing when she was a 3year old!" She definitly is the star of the show! She knew what she was supposed to be doing! All the other girls seemed to be following her lead!
