Yes, this is Thursday. No, this isn't the Weigh-in.

I just couldn't resist posting this picture.

Her dance stuff finally came in yesterday - leotard, tap shoes (she's wearing them in the picture - high heels!), ballet slippers, and two pair of tights.

Everyone in the class ordered their stuff through the school, which I kind of like, because 1. I don't have to run all over town trying to find stuff, and 2. I don't have to worry that her stuff doesn't look as nice as everyone else's.

Because, yes, I have issues. We've discussed this before.

I asked her to pose, and this is her "star" pose. Literally. She was trying to look like an actual star, with the five points and everything.

Amazing how the prospect of looking like an honest-to-goodness dancer can take a teary-eyed, pouty little girl (upset because her ponytail was a little to the side) and turn her into a star.

she is so freaking cute!!! that is my very favorite blue of all!

i think the kid's already a star, but it's good to always be reminded of 'we knew her when...'

What a great little star!

Thanks for the kind words. I mean, I'm kinda partial to her, but to hear other folks say it is nice.

And, Aunt Manda, I'm sure she misses you too!

Very cute!!

Cute!! I like the blue, too. WE have a bunch of pink and black leotards, but no blue.
