Celeste reminds us on a weekly bases why she goes to dance....for the RECITAL!! That girl is nothing like her father nor myself when it comes to the stage. She hunts for any reason to soar in the spot light. Her winter recital was originally for December 19th but due to all the snow it was unfortunately postponed until January. She was so bummed to have to wait but we tried to think of the positive and that this delay would give her a couple of extra practices so she and her group would be better prepared. Thankfully that worked! As she said, "Oh yea Mom, we're gonna be awesome!"
For every recital I have been the backstage Mom with Celeste's group and every time I ask myself why? Why in the world would any sane person force themselves to go back stage with costumes, hairspray, makeup, and wigs flying every which way? Well maybe that question just answered itself!?! Hey, here's a plus to it all....I save $7 on the purchase of a ticket (or lack there of) in the audience and I truly get use out of the extremely over priced DVD of the recital! No really...who could say no to those curls and big blue eyes that girl bats at you!!!
