The little girls in this house are obsessed with the Nutcracker. It is now January 27th… well after Christmas, and they are still asking to watch it every day. I overhear C in her in her pretend play saying things like “LIVE FROM LINCOLN CENTER.” When we play “Nutcracker” at home, everyone picks a character and dresses up… then you copy the dance that character does. I always choose the Dew Drop Fairy- feminine enough for C to approve, but on stage for a very short time. C encourages me when it is my turn by saying things like “No, Mom, you are supposed to dance good, like her!” Not in this life C, not a chance.
