Tiny Dancer

Today's joy: We always go to check in on the kids after they are asleep, before we go to bed. Mostly, they are stone cold passed out and we can't even get a smile out of them. Tonight, Iris seemed a little coherent, so we asked her if she was dreaming about something nice.

She smiled and nodded.

I asked her if she was dreaming about being a ballerina.

She nodded vigorously.

I asked her if she would bow for me, like she does when she imitates the dancers on her "Nutcracker Show" that she loves so much.

She pressed her hands together in front of her chest, sat up in bed, and bowed deeply and graciously.

Then she laid back down and went right back to sleep.

That is awesome. Don't we live for moments like that? So wonderful that you've written it down. Isn't she the best?

Hahaha love it.

What a lovely skirt. It photographs so beautifully.
