Just Dance and a Mom Fail, Big Time!

Molly had her cute little mini-dance recital on Monday night at a retirement home.  And over the next 2 months we have like 4 or 5 more of these mini-recitals.  At first Eric and I were like, "oh my word..."  But after Monday night's performance, we now know why they have so many!  The whole dance company was there, little girls from ages 3-12...and all of them had stage fright!  Well, Molly's class just acted like they didn't really know what to do, and then they would throw in some of their own dance moves.  But at least they were cute.  So hopefully by the time the real recital roles around in April, someone has a clue of what they are doing. 

Molly got her costume about a month ago and when Eric came home he said it was too tight.  I thought he was just being that overprotective dad, because he said when he told the dance teacher it was too tight she said it was supposed to fit that way.  Again, how cute, overprotective dad.  So I just ignored it and thought nothing of it.  Well, come Monday night I realized what he meant...the outfit didn't even cover her nipples!  It was so tight on her, and we both were trying to pull it up, but it wouldn't go past her little nips!  Poor kid!  Of course it is like 20 minutes before we have to be there, and we have no back-up plan!  So our daughter gave the seniors at the home a little more than a dance show :) 

So we will be getting a bigger costume.  And I noticed that Molly was not the only one with it all showing at the top...some of the other girls in her class had to the same problem.  Even the tiny, skinny ones, so that made me feel a little better, and not so much like a HUGE failure, just a BIG failure, ha! 




She clearly was thrilled to be photographed with me!  Actually, the dance teacher gave them cupcakes and we were holding it hostage until she got her photo taken with me.  I guess we have learned to not come between a girl and her cupcake.  I also found out that Molly's dance teacher was the same teacher Eric's assistant at church had 30 years ago.  Glad to know our little town is keeping it current!

Awwwww.....I think she looks so precious!!! :) You just never know how those outfits are going to fit on them. They always measure the girls for us, so I'm always just praying they fit and that they don't outgrow them by recital time. LOL!

These pictures are so cute! I didn't even notice her little nipples on facebook when I looked at these pics! But I did think she took dancing very seriously according to the picture of you and her. Now I know the truth: Cupcake!! HA!
