Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty, Coppelia, The Nutcracker....I love the ballet!! I loved dance classes when I was a kid, the beauty and elegence of the ballet was enough to bring me to tears...it still does whenever I watch it. Now, tomorrow starts my daughter's first ballet class, she has her black leotard, pink tights, and ballet shoes and is all ready to go! I can't tell you how excited I am for this, and even though I don't want to push it on her, that she will love it as much as I did. This will be the first year that I have seen the Nutcracker since I was 17, and I am so happy to take her to be able to share in this special mother-daughter time that I know she won't want to do forever!
