It's only September but we already have visions of Sugar Plums dancing in our heads. Auditions for The Nutcracker were on Saturday. This marks the fifth year that the Big Ballerina will be in the ballet.
The Little Ballerina wavered back and forth. In the end, she decided she'd rather watch than perform. It would have been her first year. Half of me is sad. The picture-taking, memory-hoarding half. The other half is jumping for joy. The stressed-out carpooling, wondering-if-she'll-decide-the-night-of-the-performance-she-doesn't-want-to-do-it half. *sigh*
So now we sit and wait for the list to be posted. Did BB get the part she desperately wants? The part her three best buddies want? The part the other 25 or so girls her age want? The part only 16 of them can get? We'll find out on Wednesday.
