It's dance recital time.
We changed dance places this year so that my nine year old daughter doesn't have to dress like she's a twenty year old hooker for her dance show. That has worked out great. My youngest daughter's dance costumes this year are really cute and are totally appropriate for her age.
Tonight when I was getting her ready for her dress rehearsal I had to put make-up on her though and I must admit I didn't use much.
She's nine, she's adorable and I didn't think she needed a lot of make-up. I put on just a tiny bit so she didn't have a shiny forehead on stage and that was it.
I'm just hoping now that one of the ladies back stage doesn't go and plaster more stuff on her.
I'm planning on going a bit early to pick her up so that I can check out what's going on.
I'm also taking make-up remover.
You know, just in case some 'dance mother' went crazy and I've got to remove two or three layers of face paint before I can figure out which little girl is mine.
I mean it'd be really bad to come home with the wrong kid, don't cha think?
