Little H finished her dance classes this weekend. It was a series of 10 and she thoroughly enjoyed them. The last class was an open house and so we got to watch her. She twirled and pointed her toes and ran in circles with the other girls and I got a glimpse of what she’s like when we aren’t interacting…when she’s being herself. The self that isn’t trying to manipulate her bedtime or get her out of eating her veggies. The self that isn’t begging for a cookie or trying to take the attention off the baby. It was only a half hour class but it let me see who she is – who she can be. Poised. Goofy. Ambitious. Graceful. Fun loving. Proud.
