"Dance Bwass" Update

Yesterday we went to an Open House at Lily's new Dance Studio...she is all set to go! We signed her up for class, ordered her tap and ballet shoes, and watched her participate in a 15 minute "Intro. Class" with other 3 and 4 year olds. She is gonna do just fine! Watching her was such an emotional experience for me...I was laughing so hard my sides hurt as she tap, tap, tapped her right foot to the lyrics singing out "This is my left foot, my left foot, my left foot"...she has much to learn! She had a huge grin on her face as she shook her bootie to the music. All of a sudden it hit me like a bulldozer that I was witnessing one of my dreams coming true right before my eyes. I remembered (like it was yesterday) watching a friend's daughter perform in her dance recital and crying through an entire number because my eyes were fixed on one particular Asian beauty in the front row. I remember thinking, praying, hoping...someday that will be my daughter. SOMEDAY HAS ARRIVED! I was about to go into the ugly cry when I caught a glimpse of my husband and his look told me something along the lines of "if you lose it, I don't know you, lady. I'm outta here!" So, I pulled myself together and continued about my business.

Wanna hear something kinda funny? Lily isn't the only one who will be taking a dance class this year. Momma signed herself up for an Adult (Beginners) Hip Hop class. My girlfriend is taking it with me. So on Tuesday nights from 7:30 to 8:30pm that is where I will be! As much as I love summer, I am actually looking forward to the fall. It should be interesting.

How cute must she be??? I can't imagine how I will feel when I finally have our K3 home and she is doing all the little girl things she wants to do.
As for you, you hot momma...have fun in your dance class! I think it is so great that you are doing that and if I lived near you, I would beg to go with you. :)
Have fun!

Oh, I think the hip hop class would be GREAT fun. I'm sure that comes as no surprise.

Hey, when you're about to break out into an ugly cry...that's when you grab your man and hug him one (then he can't get away) ;0)

lnipper said...

Can't wait to see photos of Lily dancing it up. I think it's great that your taking a dance class to. Sounds like so much fun.

Beckyb said...

EXACTLY how I felt when Chloe went to her intro. Gymnastics class last week - BUT I am not taking Gymnastics!!! SCARY!!! You go girl!

ADELE said...

How fun that you will be taking dance too. That is great!
I was just like you when I signed Mallory up for dance. I had the exact same thoughts and emotions. It was a dream come true for me. Isn't God good???!!!

Mommy Spice said...

I just joined a gym, and we have belly dancing and some salsa stuff. I haven't been to any of those classes yet, but I'm looking forward to it.

I totally know what you mean about the "crying at dance class." I look at S.G. sometimes and remember when I longed to have a child to do these things with.

Gee Gee said...

I'm so excited that Lily is going to take dance. She has really, really blossomed this year Nik. And you're taking dance too? Wow, you can both shake your booties!!

Kimber said...

You go Momma! I cannot wait to see the Youtube video recital of your hip hop class:)

I cried at Jennifer's first ballet recital, even though she sat on the floor and crawled around like a cat, meow.

crazylady said...

I'm not much of a mush ball in an outward fashion, but privately my heart does cartwheels.

Sounds like a moment, that lurks in my future? With fingers crossed?

Hip hop? What the? Who knew you were so ghetto chic.

Shannon said...

So cute tapping the wrong foot...now if you do that in class, well....

eggrolls and chopsticks said...

I want pictures of the new Hip Hop Diva.

Way to go Lily we need videos pweeze.

new girl said...

Good for both of you!!! You know I had a similar experience last summer (2006) -- went to my goddaughter's dance recital -- there was no Asian beauty, but just the experience of all the families, the childrens' excitement at being on stage, being so proud of their costumes -- my heart and my eyes just welled up...now it won't be dance recitals for us, but maybe t-ball or Christmas pageants! I cannot wait!

The Shocks said...

I hope to get Hannah in classes one day. Maybe after tax refunds next year.

Enjoy your hip hop class. I would love to do that.
