Avery is obsessed with tutus. Daddy knows this and has discovered that asking Avery if she loves her new "three-three" is not as funny as one might think. No, this dancing stuff is serious business for her. I tried to get her to play soccer with the boys, but given the choice, ballet and tap won hands down. I am loving it for her. I took her to buy her new ballet shoes, the lady who owned the shop was so cute. She led Avery by the hand to sit on this little bench and carefully helped my little ballerina try on her shoes. She told Avery to wear them every day and they should grow with her and last for two years! Of course that has been no problem.
At first I was hoping Avery would use her incredible deftness and speed to be the sports diva that I always wanted to be but never quite was. I could just see her out running all the little boys on the soccer field, scoring goals and sporting a cute ponytail. She, however, is so happy in her little dance world. Hears to individuality.
