Dancing Girls

Gloria and Snow White are enjoying their dance classes. Although, I think half the fun is getting to dress up in tights and fancy shoes. At six and seven years old one of their favorite pastimes is playing dress up. I remember when their Maxwell cousins got a ballet bar installed in their room. My girls were so envious. We'll see how these classes go and if Glory and Snow White want to stick with it.

It's kind of strange for me to see my daughters enjoy this sort of thing. I was such a tomboy when I was little. I don't think I ever wanted to be a dancer. No, I preferred to pretend I was Scarlett from G. I. Joe. She was awesome. She was a martial artist, weapons specialist, C.I.A. intelligence operative, acrobat, lawyer, and generally super smart kick-butt kind of girl. I had hoped that Gloria would be a bit more like me, but I think she is definitely going to stay a girly girl into princesses, ballet, and the color pink. Oh, well, I guess there's always hope for Katie.
