Sweetness Comes in Pairs

When I entered the dance studio today for the first time ever to sign Lilly up for classes, I know I had "sucker," I mean, "dedicated mother" written all over my face.

For the little girl who lives for gymnastics day during the week, and has asked to take "dancing class" and especially ballet ever since she could utter the words, it was time.

I couldn't resist the official tap shoes or the leather ballet slippers.

Lilly was convinced the hosiery they gave her to try on the shoes was special, so she is still wearing said hosiery.

I am convinced sweetness must come in pairs.

Come September 1, Little Miss is going to be very busy--gymnastics, dance, and preschool--and my prayer is, very happy too. Sometimes, the world just doesn't seem big enough to hold all of her GIANT dreams.

Keep dreaming BIG, my love. I promise to do all I can to help you achieve those dreams.

And may they always come in pairs.


  1. It was tutu day once a month when my girls took dance. There is just nothing sweeter than a little girl in a pink tutu!

  2. I agree......can't wait for my daughter to do these things, too.

    This post was very enjoyable.....even sweeter than you usually are.....which is over the top, anyway!

  3. I really needed to read this right now. You are right. It is our job to help them achieve their dreams. not ours. right? Great post. Gorgeous pictures. And you know tiny dancers have a special place in my heart!

  4. so sweet! I always wanted little tap/ballet shoes like that! Can't wait to see her new moves :)

  5. too funny, I've been planning a similar post! Your photos are gorgeous. And yes, I have a feeling she'll be a VERY happy girl :)
