I have been taking Kate to her dance lessons ever since she was 2 1/2. When she first started, she refused to participate and we spend nearly 2 months just sitting and watching.
How time has flown. She was in a dance performance 2 years before and she frozed on stage. She skipped last year’s performance and this year she also wanted to skip. No big deal to me.
Until she turned 5 years old in April, she came up to me and said now that she is 5 years old, she is no longer scared and wanted to be in this year’s performance.
Wish me luck and wish her luck. It will be a long long day of rehersals and a 4 hour wait until the performance. I’m volunteering just so I can be backstage with her. As always, I expect the worst and hope for the best.
