Document Part II (Memphis, TN Photographer)

This week was parent's night at dance which means we had the chance to go in and watch B during her dance class. I knew B loved to dance but it was fun for me to see her excitement and determination as she learned new moves and danced for us. It got me thinking back on all the past sports she had tried soccer, basketball, gymnastics and cheer leading. After her first soccer game she said "Mom, why did you make me do that it was so tiring all that running." I knew after that comment that sports were out of the question for her future. As a parent you imagine your kids growing up enjoying the things you do, I was an athlete from the time I was small so of course I figured my daughter would be too. When she wanted to take dance of course I wanted her to try it out. My parents let us try everything out, dance lasted for 2 weeks (I have two left feet). So I wasn't sure how it would go but she has fallen in love. She LOVES tap dance, that is her favorite part but she also loves ballet. I am so happy she has found something she loves. It's ok that she's probably not going to love sports like I did, it's fun to watch her enjoy doing something I am horrible at. And who knows, maybe she can teach me how to dance (although I am sure I am helpless)!
Just watching her made me realize my baby has grown up, her innocence is wearing off, why does time have to fly by so fast??? I wish I could keep them small forever!!!

Awww... I LOVE these!!! This just makes me more and more excited for Quincy to take dance. Watch, she'll want nothing to do with dance and everything to do with sports!! :)

Great post, Stephanie! I am already beginning to suspect that my oldest daughter and I are going to be complete opposites! I love the last shot with a big red heart. It tells so much.
