What mom has not cried at their child's first recital, cried again looking back at the first pictures in their sparkling recital costume, longed for just one moment back in the mommy and me class before we were unceremoniously asked to stay out, don't watch, stop distracting. I love my gorgeous, graceful dancer with all her teen angst. But I so so miss my little bitty ballerina with her teeny tiny shoes, the tutu that didn't come off for hours after every class (and sometimes not at all, even at bedtime). I love the little scraps of memories I have put together. And she does, too. We have found wonderful and creative ways to preserve those first sweet moments. How have you captured yours? We would love to see. Please feel free to share below with your comments and pictures!
