The Big Performance

The day of the big dance recital was tense.

Would she perform?

Would she wow the crowd?

Would the bear ears fall off her head, disrupting her concentration and preventing her from achieving her full dance potential??? I secured the ears with bobby pins and prayed for the best.

I was tied in knots inside.

So much so, we arrived to the performance an hour and a half early (just so we wouldn't be late.) We were so early we managed to get front row seats for us (and the twelve thousand family members who showed up to watch my prodigy.)

The two year old class performed very well.
One little two year old in particular was the star of the show.

Wondering which little Pooh Bear is Megan? Just look for the most talented dancer. Yep, that one. That's her. (She's also the tallest, in case you are having trouble discerning the most talented. But you better not be!)

And here she is demonstrating that her apple doesn't fall far from her mommy's tree.

I was so proud!

Sorry about the camera shaking. I was laughing so hard I almost went peeps in my pants. (almost)

I love this kid to pieces!

It was a pleasure being front and center to watch my little Moo perform for the not so sold out crowd...

The second video is priceless. I can't wait until my little one's old enough for this.
