The morning is same as usual, wake up early, have a great breakfast - we won't be eating much for the rest of the day & jump in the shower. After the shower its makeup & hair time.
By now, baby girl tries to do some of her makeup but I still do the majority of it - I'm seriously thinking about taking a makeup artist course - well, back to Recital day. I also have to do her hair, which is such a struggle. She complains I pull her hair too much, the bun is too low, the bun is too high - yadayadayada.....
Everything is on, hair is in place and now its time to load up the car and head to the theatre. Actually, this year's recital was moved to a high school, because our beloved Park Theatre is being renovated. It's about time! It was an inconvenience, but that theatre really needs an overhaul - and I'm not 100% sure it is being renovated, maybe they shut down for good. Point is this year's show was being held at a neighboring town's high school auditorium. This worked out fine, the seats were comfortable and best of all there was parking - so it's all good!
It was finally time to begin and it all starts with a graduation, which moved fairly quick. Then the awards for the rest of the school and then showtime! This entire show is a mixture of all ages and dances - there is something for everyone and it's a great time! I love, not only watching my daughter who I am so very proud of but watching all of the other students give it their all up on that stage! There truly is so much talent there and they all performed beautifully!
10 years of this and I'm still not tired, it still excites me as much as it exhausts me! It is all worth it to see my Baby Girl up on that stage, doing what she LOVES!
I only hope she continues this dance life, so I can enjoy many more years of this!
