Today I had the pleasure of attending my beautiful Goddaughter's dance recital. Can I just give my parents a huge THANK YOU for sitting through years and years of both piano and ballet recitals. (I wasn't great at either, so I'm not sure it was worth sitting through these recitals every year.)
I am one of those people that love kids, but hate things that most people find cute. And one of the things that I don't find cute are kid programs. And honestly, that includes watching my own kids. I just have to no desire to watch kids sort of sing or dance for two minutes in a program. It's not cute to me. AT. ALL. To have to watch over an hour of kids I don't know at all "dance" was like torture. Of course, my precious Goddaughter was nothing less than perfect. While watching these kids, I wondered how my parents continued putting me in dance classes year after year because all I kept thinking was that most of these parents could be saving a fortune if they just dropped the dance classes.
I used to get offended because my brother never invited me to my niece's piano recitals. Now I think he must be watching out for me. I promise to do the same.
