Maya and Karli had their dance recital a few Saturday's ago. The night started out pretty good, the girls got their hair curled without much drama (all of my girls, HATE curly hair, so this was actually quite an accomplishment), we got all of the seats saved that we needed to, and the girls made it to their assigned area. But then the drama started. Karli's class came out on the stage to dance and I was telling family that this was Karli's dance, but wait, where's Karli. She wasn't on the stage. I panicked and hurried out of the auditorium to find her. I found her crying on the wings of the stage. She was too scared to go out there and dance. I was pretty surprised since she danced just fine at Christmas time. After that she wouldn't let me leave her side. Luckily, the girls had one more show that night. I tried bribery and so did Karli's teacher to try and get her to dance in this second show. Apparently the bribe for french fries and ice cream worked, she danced for the second show.
Maya acts like a natural on the stage. She doesn't seem to get nervous at all. She just dances and smiles the whole time.
