Yesterday I signed up Annika for dance classes!! She'll start 2 weeks from tomorrow and I'm so excited for her.
So a little background on this dance class. She's only 2 but people are always mistaking her for 3. I couldn't find a single dance school that offered a class for 2 years that was in the afternoon and that wasn't in a "mommy and me" format. I can't do that since in the afternoons I'll always have Annabel too. I went to my old dance school and couldn't believe that in the 25 years since I went there (yes, I feel old typing that) that they haven't remodeled AT ALL. The place smelled like mold!! The lady there said "oh so she'll be in our 3 year old class, right". Well, yes she would be :) but I didn't like that the school was so old and it's $60 a month. I drove to a school that is a bit closer to us and in a nicer area and only $40 a month and signed her up there. The catch, I told them she's 3, I changed her birthday from 11-7-9 to 7-7-9. Yes, I lied to get my child into dance!! But I know she can handle it and she's ready to interact with other kids!
I just ordered her leotard, tights and ballet shoes. I'm so excited for her to start dance and I hope she loves it! Plus it'll be nice for Annabel and me to have 40 minutes of momma-baby time while Annika is dancing once a week :)
