Dance class

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.

I'm a parent of two lovely (most of the time) children. I work full time out of the home and I don't cook well, bake, sew, or do crafty things. I keep my high heels and jewelry at my office because there's no point in having them at home. I love Mondays because I can return to the world of adults, go to the bathroom alone and have nearly uninterrupted conversations with others.

  1. hahahahha – oh that’s just awful! Poor girl! I hope next week goes better! Maybe she’ll see her friend participating and decide she wants to join in!

  2. I’m glad I bumped into your blog. As a preschool teacher, I can say with confidence that children live in their own little “all about me” bubble. Hopefully it get better the next few times.

  3. I hope dance class was better this week. We have a daughter who is 20 now and she danced from the age of five. It will get better😊

    Hahahah! My daughter, couldn’t wait to take theater class. Finally, at 5, she was old enough… she did amazing learning her mini “Hanzel and Gretel” lines (like 5 lines) practicing was terrific and fun. No one told her that they’d be doing the actual performance on the stage (they hadn’t practiced on) and that there would be an audience. ALL BETS WERE OFF… I had to go on stage with her. She was having none of that. Later, she tells me “I want to sign up for theater again, momma, I just don’t want to do the performance part.” – It hasn’t changed and she’s now 8.
