For Isabelle's 3rd birthday our gift to her was to get her into ballet classes. Something she has been asking to do for a while now.
Me, working hard on my Mother of the Year Award, kept forgetting to call and get her into a class. The poor thing got to the point where every night before bed she would say, "You forgot about ballet again Mom!!!" Awesome feeling right there :(
After feeling like THE WORST mother in the world, I finally got my rear in gear and got her in.
The first half of the class they teach the girls tap, then ballet and tumbling. Getting to wear her "clickity-clack shoes", as she calls them, was the icing on the cake! I got such a kick out of watching her bounce around with the biggest grin on her face :)
Needless to say, she L-O-V-E-D it.
