This is just a short post to convey my best wishes to all those dance mom’s who read my blog. All of you do an enormous amount to help your sons become successful dancers – and successful people.
A couple of years ago, my son gave me a cute shirt on Mother’s Day. It said, “I’m a…rhinestone gluein’…taxi drivin’…hair spraying’…makeup totin’…costume sewin’…shoe tyin’…tear wipin’…cheer leadin’…trophy displayin…Dance Mom!” Other than the rhinestone glueing, since boys don’t tend to have too many rhinestone’s on their costumes, it’s pretty true. That’s who I am a lot of the time. And so are you.
So, I commend all of you! And I hope that with this blog I’ll be able to help you feel like you aren’t along in your “job” and offer you some useful information as well.
I hope you had a good Mother’s Day. I put my son, as well as my daughter and husband to work for me for once. They helped me weed my garden, which is huge and totally overgrown, and do a bunch of other odd jobs. This Thursday is tech for Copelia and then on Friday Julian’s Copellia performance, and then he goes into tech week for the Teen Dance Company concert. I get to do the synchronized swimming mom thing on Friday through Sunday. I’m missing Copellia…the first dance event I’ve missed in a long time. Luckily it’s being video taped, and I can watched the technical rehearsal on Thursday.
Hopefully, I’ll get the last Duncan Cooper interview posted in the next few days, so keep your eyes open for it.
