Thankfully, we only have one recital each year and a performance at Christmas (at the mall). That one is fun because they get Christmas sweatshirts and wear jazz pants. A little makeup, Christmas socks and a Christmas bow and you are good to go. Plus it's at the mall...and each parent has to be responsible for their own child. Then there is Mayfest which is kind of a pre-dress rehearsal for the recital. This year is was cancelled because of the Swine flu...remember the Swine Flu?
Here is a progression of our day in preparation for the big event!
First you sleep in sponge rollers for the curly pony tail that Mrs. Janet requested. You wake up and watch cartoons after breakfast.
You try on your new sneakers. She has been wanting "Hip Hop" shoes for ages because this is what the bigger girls who take hip hop dance wear. Pink of course!
Take out the sponge rollers and use a half can of Aqua Net.
Get on the computer and other activities that don't mess up the curls.
