Hello intrepid readers! Blondefabulous here and I have gotta tell you..... this free education is breaking me! Holy crap!! I just got a list of things I need to go buy my eldest daughter for her Dance class and Oh. My. God. I am gonna go broke! Really!
She needs two pairs of shoes, one for ballet and one for Jazz. She needs 2 leotards, (or Leo's in the jargon.), she has to have at least 2 pairs of tights, and "Jazz" pants, what ever the hell those are. Also as an option, she needs a black ballet skirt. EEK! I haven't even gotten the measurements for the shirts she needs for choir! I remember when school was free.
On another note, Morgan got all of her ballet wardrobe finally! The program she is in provides all the clothing..... leo, tights, and shoes. I just have to pick her up from the school 2 days a week. A pretty good deal, if you ask me. Ms. M drives me over to the local high school to pick her up. (If you all remember, she is the mom with 4 boys.) She says this appeases her wanting of a little girl, and who am I not to share the adorable cuteness that is my little ballerina? I am trying to arrange a play date with her two youngest boys and Junior. He needs to be around other boys.
Now, I hear music in the background playing... "The best things in life are free, but you can give that to the birds and bees... I need money! That's what I want!"
update: I am back from the mad dash for dance wear. Ms. M took myself, Junior, & Rebecca to go look for Rebecca's stuff with a side trip to Starbucks! I got everything for about $75. The most I paid was $21 for the shoes we HAD to get from a professional dance shop. I was worried when we went there because all the boxes had $59, $64, and $75!!!! OMG! I will go broke! Lord help me! On the plus side, now Ms. M wants a girl because of all the cute, frilly, pink Tu-Tu's and ballet wear she saw while we were shopping. I told her she should just borrow one of mine!!!
