Dance Recital 2013

Last night was Maddy’s dance recital.  She seemed so little on that stage and yet was such a big girl, to be backstage hanging with her friends waiting for her turns to dance.

She had a blast dancing, and  was so focused on doing her best.  She was beaming at the end of the show, full of that adreline rush you get after something really big happens.

Tonight was a different story, she was a hot mess for bedtime.  Her emotions riding so close to the surface  they were bubbling over until she just needed me to be with her long past her bedtime.  I am her true north, the one who comforts her.

When moments like last night collide with moments like tonight, I try to remember she won’t always feel this overpowering need for me, this connection that if Mommy stays in bed with me all will be right with my world.  Wouldn’t it be great if that feeling lasted?

I love both the great highlights like last night of watching my girl dance her heart out and moments like tonight where there was no applause at the end.

Maddy’s tap dance – this was taken during their rehearsal the night before.  She loves tap the best, and her favorite part is to “get on the floor…”  At one point I clearly was watching her dance more than watching through the video camera, I promise it’s only for a few seconds that you will wonder what I was doing.
