A year ago, if you'd have asked me if I'd be dancing again and wearing this tutu, I'd have said, "I wish! I'm too old!" For some reason last fall I got the courage to seek out a few adult ballet classes, and I am so glad I did! Sometimes it's hard to do things that you feel you shouldn't once you're a "grown up" but I am so glad I am dancing again. I have made some amazing friends including both of my teachers, it is SUCH good exercise, it makes me feel young and alive, and it reminds me that I am more than just a mom. I love being a mom, but there has to be balance. It took me nearly 6 years to learn that. So now, I will grab my tutu along with Mae's and enjoy this moment! Hopefully I won't fall on my face, but if I do, I'll still be glad I did it. Life is too short to not do the things you really want to do. I hope that I inspire at least one other person to do something that they secretly wish they were still doing or have always wanted to try. You only live once. Do it now! I am so thankful my hubby has supported me along the way and has put up with my constant plies and leaps around the house!
