We recently signed my daughter up for a tiny toes ballet class. This morning was her first class. We got there a little bit early and met up with her bestest little friend in the world. There was one other child there too. The three kids went into the classroom and pranced around. My daughter went running in, very excited at first, then suddenly she no longer wanted to be there.
As the other parents and children began to arrive, she got crankier and crankier. She insisted on changing out of her dance outfit and back into her regular clothes. She refused to get off my lap once the class started. By about 10 minutes in, she was asking to go home.
Apparently she thought that the dance class was going to be just for her and her little friend. She was horribly offended that other children had been allowed to join their class.
I’m hoping next week will go a little smoother.
