ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand

It’s not the first time I have seen her dancing in the sand. But it is the first time I have seen her dancing in the sand along the Atlantic seashore.

And then suddenly I gasp because my tiny dancer is so grown up…grown up much too fast. Next competition season (which she will be auditioning for next weekend) will be her last competitive season.

Honestly, I don’t think I am quite ready for a year of “lasts” with this little girl of mine…last Dance Stars team audition…last first day of school…last Homecoming…last…oh stop!…I can’t…

Then for the last time…Skinny Love…

Who will love you?
Who will fight?
And who will fall far behind?

And with a flick of her wrist and a heavy sigh her Skinny Love solo was done…done forever.

Yup! I am not ready for this year of lasts. Hold me closer my tiny dancer…mommy dearest is not quite ready.
