It's my Sweet Niece's 5th birthday today.
I went to her ballet recital last weekend...when she was still 4. She's in 'pre-ballet', but wants to try hip-hop next year. The recital cost $12 and it was in an Arts Centre. It was assigned seating. There were video clips! Of superheroes! And a fog machine! And big kids! Serious business.
Dear Girl was on the stage for about 90 seconds, as she pointed her toes and paraded around the stage in her leotard and tutu, following in a line behind her teacher. It was a Dora-themed number. I grinned and grinned.
