Well, the girls have been practicing since September and the big recital day is today and Sunday. Both of the girls take tap, this is Amaya's 2nd year and Paige's first.
Paige is very excited because she gets to wear a tutu and gloves that go up to the top of her arms. Amaya says she feels like a princess in her dress.
At the very last practice on Monday let's just say Amaya wasn't doing the best that she could. I very nicely went back stage and gave her a little pep talk reminding her this was her last practice and I wanted her to show me the best job she could do (I didn't say anything about how she was really doing). About 4-5 minutes later a girl comes out carrying Amaya and Amaya is crying like crazy. The girl said she had no idea what was wrong with her. I sat Amaya down and ask what was wrong and she said "I'm hungry, I am soooooo hungry". OK, I gave this child 2 snacks that afternoon just so that wouldn't happen.
The recital starts at 7 tonight and lasts about 3 1/2 hours so I'm hoping for no meltdowns and I can't wait to see my cuties on stage.
So after nap today we begin the 2-2/12 hour process of little tiny curls in 2 girls hair and make-up.
I'll post pictures in the next couple of days.
