Ballet Baby!

Today was Kate's first pre-Ballet class. A friend of mine made her a tutu, but I didn't get it from her in time for the class, but next time for sure! She wanted a purple one. She has a black leotard and some pink tights. She also got some shoes, but she doesn't have them on in the pictures. She talked about going to dance all day today, but once she arrived it was a different story. She did not want to participate. Luke did, he was doing everything the teacher was doing. He loved it. Next time the teacher said the mommies will wait outside. I bet because of us...Luke was everywhere! When we left, Kate said "I don't like Dance!" She said she doesn't want to go back...ugh.


She got a stamp of a butterfly on her hand because everyone else got one for participating and I think the teacher felt sorry for her. She would not let me wash it off in the bathtub tonight!

Have a great week!

It was probably because she didn't have her tutu on :(

she looked adorable anyway! Z pulled that same thing a couple times at soccer, (i have pics of him laying down in the middle of the field watching everyone kick around him) but eventually, he enjoyed it. I hope the next few times reveal her inner ballerina.

I'm with Kerri the tutu is going to seal the deal for her. Love her sassy new haircut.

This is too adorable!! I bet she will love it!! Ava took gymnastics when Sam was brand new and would sleep in his car seat - and the first time was terrible, but she ended up loving it. This makes me want to go sign up for ballet :) BTW, I totally understand about going back to work - I am not built to be a stay-at-home mom even though I think I am very lucky to be able to do it. I need adult interaction and a sense of accomplishment that doesn't come from changing a diaper :)

Oh my gosh...she looks like such a big girl with her fancy ballet outfit and her new haircut!! Precious!!

Can't wait to hear about next ballet class...maybe it will be better with you guys not in the room...maybe she'll forget about you and Luke because she's having SOOOO much fun!! Hope it goes well!!
