Last night was just wonderful. It was my daughter's very first ballet performance and it was a fairly large production. Lucy didn't seem nervous at all. She was amazing. My husband and I were very nervous and squeezed each other's hands through her entire dance. I'm sure we had the goofiest smiles on our faces.
It was my first time as a mommy to be in the audience like that and that was a truly odd experience. My parents attended the performance as well and I met them outside to hand off the tickets and show them to our seats. I'm sure everyone is familiar with the phenomenon of always feeling like a child when your parents are around. And as I watched them walk across the grass towards the theater it was the strangest feeling to know they were there to see not me, but my daughter, my child. I'm a real live MOM! Amazing.

"Mommy, I got a hundred thousand flowers!"
Because when you're six it's all about the cookies. Truly when you are thirty it's still all about the cookies. "There are cookies??!!" Perhaps only because my husband and I skipped dinner, but that was nice.
We are very nearly into summer mode. I am having Lucy finish all of the MUS test booklet as a final exercise. I sort of didn't realize we had a test booklet until a few weeks ago. Because I am on top of things like that.
