Dance little flamingo, dance

Olivia recently had her dance recital, so I thought I'd share the only two pictures I took.

This was her after the show, just as we were getting ready to leave. Look at that hip pop and her leg! Such a big girl, it's hard to believe she's going to officially be a teenager in just a few short months. Time just keeps moving forward.
I had to get a picture of just her and I after, it's kind of tradition at this point. I was so proud of her and she was so pleased with how she did. My first instinct is to tell her everything she could have done better, where her arms were sloppy or she over turned, but I'm learning to just... not. Whatever. It doesn't change anything and I don't feel any better and neither will she. I also haven't taken pictures of the kids doing their events like I used to. Old Sara would have gotten snaps of each dance, a group picture, picture with friends, etc and I just don't do it anymore. I'm trying to enjoy what I'm watching versus focused on taking pictures and I have to tell you, it's kind of freeing. I'm just going to enjoy what I can, when I can. It's kind of nice to not have that kind of stress on me, and I'm all about reducing my stress lately.

So yeah. She had a recital. She did fine. It was a good hour of my Saturday morning where I felt like I was really mom'ing it up.

I'm glad you got to enjoy it! I hate that you compare yourself to Old Sara. I think you're doing a great job and I'm glad you're trying to live more in the moment :) It's all we have anyways!
