Tonight was Emma’s first ever “picture night” at dance. Her recital is about 3 weeks away and this was great practice for us to figure out how to fix her hair, costume, etc. Emma was so excited all day- she kept asking how long until she could put her costume on.
The song they will be tapping to is “Teddy Bear” by Elvis Presley and their costumes resemble teddy bears.
Her teacher asked that the girls wear their hair in two high buns behind the teddy bear ears. I was already worried about putting her hair in ONE bun, but TWO??? Fortunately, I think I figured it out. It wasn’t perfect, but it worked. My mom came over on Sunday night for a trial run.
As I was doing Emma’s hair by myself on Monday afternoon Emma said, “Mommy, do you know what you’re doing?” I think she could sense the stress on my face- kids are so honest and perceptive!
Here’s to many more dance picture days!
I love this first picture- this is the first time she has ever worn mascara and it just made her look so grown up!
