Miss Kate has been attached to my hip for sometime now...she doesn't want to try anything like nursery, preschool or dance...until today. She informed me that she wanted to start taking dance with Lily. I explained to her that she couldn't cry and she had to listen to the teacher and be really good...to this, she put her hands on her hips and replied:
"Mom, I promise I won't cry, and I won't smack anybody, and I won't poke anybody in the eye...I'm a big girl."
And she did go to dance, and just as promised, she didn't do any of those things :) And even though she did amazing at listening and dancing, the teacher told her after class that three year olds aren't allowed to dance because she had already told other three year olds "no" (never mind that she was even better behaved than her four year old sister who likes to boss the other girls in class around) :( She was on cloud nine all day after dance, and she keeps talking about how much fun it was. I don't have the heart to break it to her :(
On a related note, this must be her week to grow up, because she actually went to nursery on Sunday at church...for about 20 minute all.by.her.self!!! And then, she came to find me, because "she needed to give me a kiss."
