Do You Wanna Dance?

For as long as I can remember I knew if I had a little girl I would put her in dance class. It's something I always wanted to do but never was able to until I was older, and then, it kind of fizzled for me. I was in the basic class when all of my friends had danced forever. Anyway, I admit, I'm putting my own dreams on my child. For now at least. If there comes a day that she no longer wishes to dance then we won't go. But for now it's something she loves.

And let me say, there are many days I reconsider my whole "mydaughterisgoingtotakedanceidea".

Like when it's cold. Or raining. Or I'm pregnant and have morning sickness (which I am not and do not have right now). Or I'm towing 2 extra kiddos in with me. Or I'm towing in 4 extra kids with me. Yeah- it's a lot of work.
I always wonder what we look like to other people....
Now I know.

Recently Kate captured some of our dance day moments. Mind you we have to wait 45 minutes in a foyer of an old home where her dance class is located. 45 minutes with two 2 year olds and 2 infants can seem like an eternity some days. Other days it goes quickly.

Monkey Do

Monkey See

On this particular day the parents could go back to the studio to observe- so I really wasn't going to miss it.

This shot shows mommy holding Bud in a sling, Daisy in my left arm, Monkey Do in my lap and Monkey See hanging on my back all while holding the video camera in my right hand... yes, I am a multi-tasker!! Funny- now that I see it, it makes me a little tired. But at the time I was just in the moment and it's a normal part if our day so I didn't really think about it.
Anyway, I did it all so I could see this...

And this!!
If you ask me, it was all worth it!
