My Beautiful Wickedness

How did this happen?

I’m packing up for this weekend’s three-day dance competition and as I’m counting costumes, I realize that my daughter is dancing an even dozen routines. She’s packed her doll, her good luck bear, her lucky make-up sponge (don’t ask), and is already begging to be allowed to wear my iPod for a little while when she’s backstage. She’s such a little girl but on the verge of being some other creature entirely. 

Anything to cut the stress.  The team is having a rough meet and we’re not even at the venue yet. Two of her teammates have broken bones in the last twenty-four hours, including her choreographer’s teenage daughter. This girl is a lovely dancer and a really nice person. She’s also a featured performer in nearly everything the older kids do. It’s heartbreaking that she’ll be on crutches rather than flying across stage on Saturday night.

Time to sleep.  Still so much to do before the housesitter shows up.
