Last weekend was Tyler Bree's first dance competition of the year. We've done "pre-team" competitions in years prior, but this was the first real deal. She did great and loved it...thankfully. We have another one this weekend in San Antonio and then some more coming up in a few weeks. So basically, I'll be a pro at ballerina buns, false eyelashes, and quick changes come summer.
I've never seen the show "Dance Moms", but I have a feeling that the reality I witness at these competitions are not far from what they portray on the show...meaning, they keep it real. Aside from kniving moms (which I'm sure there are some, just not on our team), being a dance mom is not for the faint of heart. It kicks my butt.
Not even kidding.
So you might be wondering, what on Earth could be so challenging about being a little ol' dance mom...how could it possibly be anything but cheers and smiles and "Break a leg, Honey!" you might ask...
