A few weeks ago Harper had her very FIRST dance recital!
This was a moment I have dreamt of for so long.
She LOVED putting on “wip stick!”
Her excitement was palpable.
Seriously, she looked so sweet in her costume!
I could have eaten her with a spoon!
I was one proud mama and tried to etch every single second in my mind from getting her ready, to her first spritz of hairspray, to the smile on her face when I applied my lipstick, to the excitement when she finally put on the costume she had been eyeing in her closet for a week.
This was her moment to shine and I wanted her to feel extra special on her big day!
Then it was time for her “Tiny Toes” class to go on stage!
Once the lights came on and the music started,
she was frozen.
She stood there just looking out at the hundreds of faces staring at her in the audience and I am pretty sure she was thinking “what in the HECK is going on?!”
It was the cutest thing I have ever seen and I was so proud of her,
even if she just stood there still from the shock of the bright lights and very loud music.
Then it happened,
during the last 10 seconds on the routine, she decided to pick up her flowers and
then it was over!
Seriously, I have never been so proud!
Those few minutes watching her just stand there motionless on the stage was the cutest thing I have ever seen!
This was her moment.
She was so excited and really seemed to feel so special.
We are all so proud of Harper and will remember her awesome “performance” forever!
Our tiny dancer finally had her big moment!
We are so proud of her!
