Gabrielle had her first toddler ballet class this morning. She was so excited, went up front of the class (picture below) then froze and ran to me the second the teacher asked the kids to do something! She clung to me and would not let go! Then, without crying or screaming, she calmly repeatedly asked to leave. “No dance class, go to grandma’s house.” I tried to get her into it by following the teacher’s instruction (while still carrying her!) but there was no convincing her. We left after 10 minutes. We’ll try again next week when she won’t be going to grandma’s house after, then maybe she’ll be more patient and interested! Now my parents have her for the rest of the weekend as Chris and I celebrate (two weeks early) our 5-year wedding anniversary!
