Saw this on Huffington Post and thought it would be fun to share!

ex-dancers, parents of dancers and dancers should enjoy!

 

I particularly enjoyed the entry about changing in a speeding minivan! LOL

Thanks for sharing, buzzandmoo!

 

I liked the entry about spelling barre and pointe correctly.   :)

But that picture with the tulle comment (half-on, half-off, ill-fitting pointe shoes)--eek! :yucky:

Or the little baby girls wearing pointe shoes, that terrified me

 

But happy Valentine's, everyone! :wub:

MamatoMary, I drive a Mini Cooper and when she was little and traffic was bad she would squeeze in the back and change, recently on a particularly bad commuting day I glanced over at my now 5'4" baby and she said "Don't even suggest the back seat....it is SO NOT happening!" LOL

Gave me Princess Diaries flashbacks, that one.

 

If I'm going to ballet that day, I just wear tights and my leo under my regular clothes all day because I hate changing in a hurry, so that one actually didn't apply....but I can spell pointe and barre correctly...to the point where in art class we were labeling vanishing points and I kept spelling it "pointe"

This one made me chuckle out loud! Funny how they grow up so quickly!
