I decided to sign up Big Girl for a week of ballet classes next month, to see if she enjoys them and wants to take them in the fall. So I ordered a few leotards and some tights, which came on Saturday. I asked Big Girl to try them on this morning, to make sure they fit before I wash them, and she is delighted. She told me repeatedly that they were "so pretty" and she said "Thank you, Mommy!" and hugged me after trying on each of the three leotards. She looks incredibly cute in them. I can't wait to see her wearing the tights, leotard, and little pink ballet shoes when she goes to her first class. She's adorable all the time, of course, but in tiny ballet dancer wear, even more so. I took ballet from age three through college, and so I'm particularly hopeful that she'll love dance as much as I did.
