the first ever dance recital. not ever having taken a dance class when i was young, one does not realize everything that goes on before said recital must take place.
at 10:30 friday night, i was on the sofa adjusting the straps of C's costume so that they fit properly. they were so long i think i took in at least 2". then saturday morning there was hair to style, make-up to apply and of course, a costume to put on. her class did a dance to an eskimo theme song so it was only fitting that we woke up to a half inch of snow that morning.
for her first time, she did well. she danced during the first part and the end but seemed to take a break in the middle to turn around and gaze at the props decorating the stage. when i asked her later what her favorite part was, she mentioned the candy canes hanging from the ceiling. go figure.
