So we ran our errands. Got home and waited for Emma to get off the bus. Once Emma got home we had Village Dance Studio on the agenda for the evening. It was sign up night. This year we weren't just signing up one girl, but two girls. And the youngest (pictured above) was 100% on cloud nine she was getting signed up for a dance class this year!
As I finish up pre-supper plans, I holler at the kids to "go ahead and get buckled in the car!" They listened and did. We go to the dance studio.
We walk in the dance studio.
We wait in line at the dance studio that is full of eager dancers and parents.
As my turn is up, I sit down and begin the sign up process. I tell the girls to go ahead and make their way to the "shoe station" as they will need to get in line to be measured for new dance shoes.
They listened and did.
Then as I am finishing up and signing the last piece of paper work, I glance up at the mirror that stretches all down the studio wall. There I see it. Disney Princess panties. They were on a girl that was twirling and leaping, to her own beat, in front of the mirror. They were on a girl that was wearing a Hello Kitty shirt with ruffle on the bottom. They were on a girl that didn't have shorts on.
Yep. That girl, was this girl. My girl. My girl that as I jumped up and had her sit down while I asked where her shorts were, replied with "I don't know, I guess I forgot them."
Forgot. Yes. Yes, she did.
Hello Village Dance Studio. Meet Hope. Hope is the girl that would live life with no pants on. Good luck.
