The Lipstick & The Spring Dance Recital
Now for some things that are good.
Mainly my kids! (I mean, you know, they aren’t always good, but they are pretty much awesome 99% of the time. Or when they aren’t trying to make me crazy…)
Rosie had her spring dance recital last night. For the recital she has to wear make-up. The outfits and the make-up kind of make me want to run in circles screaming and then bury my head in the sand, but Rosie absolutely *loves* every tiny detail.
So she had to wear red lipstick…and this was a source of major, major excitement in our household. I let Rosie put some on the morning before the recital so she could practice not smearing it all over herself by accident. Oh, she nearly exploded with joy. She kept asking me if I thought she looked more like a queen or a princess, or a maybe a fashionista?
Ada grabbed the tube of lipstick, whipped the lid off, and ran down the hall laughing at the top of her lungs while rapidly applying it to her lips.
She was very upset when I took it away. She stayed angry at me for quite a long time actually. She felt that she didn’t get to put on quite enough of it.
“Mom, send this photo to Cade. It will make him want to marry me.”
Someone help. Where does she even get these ideas?
Ada saw her reflection and was very pleased wif her wipstick.
Miraculously she has not a single speck on her teeth.
Rosie has no stage fright. At all. She doesn’t get that from me.
She loved every second of her recital. Her group tap danced to Yankee Doodle.
Before the recital:
Every girl got a medal after the show.
Here are a few more pictures from the performance, just for the heck of it…I took them from my seat with Ada squirming in my lap.
Ada wanted to run up on the stage and dance too. She ran and I had to tackle her several times, but luckily she never made it onto the stage!
I have a bunch of pictures from today to share too. Will have to post them tomorrow because it’s already 1:15 in the morning.
