A Step into Ballet
She was the littlest in her class.
(And probably too young to be starting class, proper.)
But she's been twirling and dancing little circles at home.
So we went for a trial.
And when we got into the studio, she was just the tiniest lil tutu dancer.
My heart paused for a little.
I wanted to just walk away with her.
But stayed we did.
At first, she sat in the line with the other girls.
Then the childlike innocence came out
she ran across the room squeaking ,'Mummy!'
After a quick cuddle, she ran back to the line.
It made me laugh.
Throughout the class, she would listen to the teacher at times
and followed her own agenda at others.
It was fine by me.
When it was over, she smiled at the little sticker that was awarded.
and said, 'I like dance.'
So we might do a couple more trials.
As long as she enjoys it in her childlike way.
That's all mummy wants.
