Commuication 101

Babycakes takes ballet on Tuesdays after school. It is the perfect situation. She finishes her day at preschool, eats lunch, changes into her tutu and heads to ballet. I pick her up two hours after school is done. Like I said ... perfect!!

They have a recital next Saturday. The ballet teacher has been preparing them for weeks and is now working on their costumes and the final details. She sends the girls home with their instructions. She does not send paperwork ... she just tells the girls what they need to tell us. Babycakes loves this. She feels completely in the know. She comes home and fills me in on all the details.

The first week she came home and told me they need white panties or no panties under their pink tights "with feet please" for their costumes. She promptly told me ... "Miss Becky does not want any tinkerbell panties sticking out the back of our tutus" ... she then told me that Miss Becky said that was tacky. Yes, my dear ... it is!

Last week she came home with instructions for their hair. "No front pony tails, no two pony tails, no barrettes, no headbands and no braids. A bun or just cut hair." Since we are sporting the stacked bob we will go with "just cut hair".

Last night I got more information. We need pink ballet shoes. "Not white, not black but pink to match my tights with feet please." Check. I will get right on that!

Thank goodness my child can remember to tell me the deets. Or else she might me sporting two pony tails with footless tights and High School Musical panties pooking out the back of her tutu with her white ballet slippers. What a fiasco that would be!

Just to be sure ... that would not happen. Mommy is too preppy for that crazy action!

Pinky swear!
