Every time I took Aniston last year, Emerson would cry. She was big enough to go too. And every day she didn't get to go her little heart would break. So there was no way she was not going to dance this year.
The 1st day of class arrived and she was so excited. She let me dress her in her new Leotard. She gathered her dance shoes in her new little dance bag, and she even let me put a matching black ribbon in her hair.
Now, she is my shy child. She never gets farther away from me than arms lenght. I wasn't sure that she was going to let me leave her there. At first it appeared that she wasn't, but I said I was going and she ran to me and puckered her lips and reached for a hug and that was that. 45 minutes later I picked her up and she didn't want to leave.
I love being the mommy of girls.
