Her teacher was helping her class along by showing the dance steps while hiding behind the curtains. I thought it was so cute that Muffin was facing her teacher instead of the audience! (she's on the left) Very adorable of course, how could she not be?
Unfortunately for her, she didn’t get to see the other dancers, she had to wait 2.5 hrs (minus her time on stage) on a side room. I brought a coloring book, plain paper, crayons & (washable) markers and that helped her while away the time.
She was very proud of her dancing - and loved the lovely bouquet that Nana & Grandad brought her! Afterwards we all went out for a nice mid-afternoon late lunch at a local yummy Spanish/Portuguese restaurant.
I think her favorite part is that I put REAL lipstick on her (medium shade of pink). I had to keep saying this was ONLY because of the recital, otherwise I just know she'd keep asking for it every day... boy does she love makeup!
