Emmy believes many things. First, she believes that she will be five at her next birthday. She just does not see the need for the age of four and wants to skip ahead to her brother’s age. Two, she absolutely believes she is Queen Elsa from the movie Frozen. Finally, she knows she was born to dance. Since I can’t (and wouldn’t if I could) make her skip her fourth year, and I am not sure how to turn her into an ice queen, I decided to make her dream of dance come true. So Saturday, we danced.
She was petrified at first….
…but after a few minute long warm up (and seeing one of her girly friends from church), Emmy was the happiest she has ever been.
Emmy loved ballet. When I asked her at the end of class if she wants to go back she said “Oh yes mommy…” she shook her hips and said “and I want to wear a black swimsuit!”
For faithful readers, you might recall that Emmy went through phase where she KNEW she was a real doctor. That has passed, and being a Ballerina Elsa has taken over.
