Toddler classes and sports can be a little… different than older kids. You never know what a toddler is going to do or say.
For us, dance class has been amazing. Mila loves the girls that are there, dancing, and following around her dance instructor the entire time. On the mom side of things, it’s a little more stressful, but full of proud moments too.
Every dance evening is full of thoughts, even though class is only a half hour long. Here are some of mine for you to laugh with.
What to do with her hair this week?
Every single week is a constant battle of doing something fun with her hair, but making sure it stays up. It’s even harder when your toddler doesn’t like their hair touched. Yet, somehow it ends up decently cute.
Where are her dance shoes?
Quiet panic sets, until you realize you just misplaced it in the car. Oh well.
Why are dance shoes so hard to put on?
Um, what shoe goes on which foot? Maybe she needs a bigger size… nope. Just on the wrong feet.
Please, let her be nice…
Thank goodness for socialization and her playing with other kids her age. Oops. No! Don’t push while you guys are racing.
Her teachers are ready. It’s go time.
She is so cute when she listens and dance.
Aww, she instantly found her sticker and is ready to go. Are all kids this cute when they listen?
Run and hide!
Time for a half hour of alone time. Let’s see if I can escape before she sees me leave.
Is she doing okay? Does she miss me?
Being away and not knowing is hard. I wonder if she’s listening and dancing her heart out. What if she’s looking for me and I’m not there?
Is the music really loud or am I just getting old… it’s definitely the music.
Time to watch all her dance efforts.
Her little face pops through the door. It’s time to watch all her hard work.
The smile on her face and all the little dancers face makes every up and down of the evening worth it.
There’s just joy all around.
