If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that Waverly Maye had her first official dance class last weekend!! It was a really big moment for us, Waverly loves to dance, she is moving all the time anyways & then as soon as she hears any type of beat she starts circling the room making sure everyone is watching her. We recently found a place that would take her even though she isn’t three yet, most of the places around here won’t take little ones that early but this dance studio agreed to since she is officially potty trained now! 🙂
Part of me was nervous, she has been in a my gym class since she was six months old and we have done gymnastics, but both are mommy & me so she has never done anything that structured or without me there. Also, Waverly is outgoing as they come, but is sometimes shy when she first meets someone or is a new situation. I wasn’t sure if she would even go in without me or last the hour if she did. Yet she shocked me (don’t they always?!), ran right in without looking back & had the absolute best time. I sat right outside the door even though I couldn’t see anything, at one point the room was quiet & then I heard Waverly’s voice yell out “do you have all about that bass & will you play it really loud?”. Yep, my kid. Overall, it was so much fun & I am already looking forward to her dance recital in a few months!
We have recently been trying to figure out what we are going to do with both girls in the fall, we know we want to send Waverly to preschool at least part-time & we have quickly learned those spots fill up way in advance (like maybe I should book baby girl now?!). I know Waverly will love it, plus I really want her to be around other kids her age & to have something all of her own once her world is rocked by a little sister. I toured a school this week, which I immediately fell in love with & know Waverly will fit in perfectly there. As soon as the director mentioned themed holiday parties and field trips, I knew we had met our match. 😉 I’m sure other moms can relate, it’s hard enough to leave your kid anyways, so it feels really good to find a place that I feel comfortable with & that overall, just feels right.
And because it’s Friday, a few things I have had my eye on this week! This dress, it is such a steal & fits perfectly with the bump plus can be worn after. I’m excited to wear it all summer long! I also finally got curtains for the nursery, I went with all white blackout ones, then got these gold knobs for a fun pop on either side. And a fun treat for Easter, this bark that would be super easy & fun to make with the little ones!
Have a wonderful weekend, friends!
PS – Waverly’s leotard and bow are from H&M, the bow is actually from the adult accessories section which is where I always find cute bows for super cheap. 🙂
