We dance

We dance a lot. To the radio in the car, the ring tones on the cell phone, a concert playing on the local television channel.
As babies, my kids have danced when I run the vacuum. They have all done it. They hear a rhythm that to us just sounds like, well, a vacuum.
Anna ran an errand with me last week and while we were in the store she saw a movie. The Barbie Nutcracker. She wanted it so bad, it was only five dollars, but I made her put it back. She never watches television for more than a second. She is too busy for such things.
We walked by it again.
"Pea mama, pea, barbie"
We got it home and watched it. She was enthralled. As the sugar plum fairies were dancing around, she stood on her tiptoes, twirled around, and has not stopped since. I can't stop watching her.
I thought I was done with the Christmas presents, but really....

I had to make her this tutu. After I decided I was going to make this I could barely sleep. I told a friend what I was doing, and she needed one too. In pink.


I want to make a million of these, and open up like,a tutu factory or something. If I don't give this to her soon, I just may bust something...
