Little Ballerina

Kennedy and her friend Emily had their first ballet class on Friday morning and it was about the cutest thing I have ever seen. My ballet career began when I was three, went on a brief hiatus and came back better than ever when I was five. Apparently, when I was three, I spent most of the class making (probably awesome) faces at myself in the mirror, and the teacher suggested my mother wait until I was closer to five to give it another shot. I kind of expected the same out of Kennedy, especially because our morning started off sour (I would't let her have ice cream for breakfast...mean mommy, I know).

Leading up to ballet class I knew I had to get her proper ballet clothes and shoes. Since we were headed to NM, I was excited to take her to NM Dancewear, which is where I bought all my dance supplies growing up. The store has been there for-ever and looks exactly the same inside. We got her fitted for shoes and Minnie Mouse helped choose a classic black leotard. I wanted to get her a wrap skirt like I used to wear, but they don't come that I made her one when we got back to Dallas.

She did great in class and while I tried to stay hidden as to not distract her, I loved watching her follow directions and occasionally drift off in her own little world. All afternoon she kept telling me "I dancing," so I think she had fun.
