No one told me what it was like to have a definite girly girl for a daughter. My husband comes from a family of all boys and I only have one brother so our mothers didn't know and couldn't advise us.
My Baby Bee is most decidedly a girly girl.
This is Baby Bee's dance bag. She's had it for a long time now and it's showing some wear.
But isn't just the cutest? I found it in on a family trip to Minnesota.
Our girl has taken dance classes since she was four years old. She is now nine and just performed in her fifth dance recital. She has taken ballet, jazz, and hip-hop. But her favorite costumes are definitely the ballet costumes.
Her first year she was a bunny. She led the bunnies all over the stage and did a very good job. The production was The Tortoise and the Hare.
The tail looks a bit worse for the wear. We couldn't find the rest of the costume to show you.
The next year she played a flower. She was just in kindergarten that year. The girls could pick what color flower they wanted and Baby Bee picked - PINK - of course. She was the only pink flower. That year the dance school produced The Three Little Pigs.
Now I'm going to stray a bit from the pink because she played a princess in her next recital and the dress was blue and lavender. But please note the vintage PINK wooden hanger all these costumes have hung on. It was mine when I was a little girl so I think I can safely call it vintage. She played one of the emperor's daughters in The Emperor's New Clothes.
I think this has been her prettiest yet, although this year's was very nice too.
In her fourth year of dancing ballet she played a flower girl in The Princess and the Pea. Again the dress isn't pink but the spirit of PINKNESS lives in this costume.
Still on the vintage pink hanger so please don't shoo me out of Pink Saturday.
And finally this year her dance school put on Queen Midas. She danced as a dragonfly in the queen's garden. Again the girls could choose pink or royal blue - my Baby Bee picked PINK of course.
Velvet and tulle - so lovely this year and grown up looking.
Okay this one might be my very favorite so far. Baby Bee plans to continue to dance at her studio this next school year. She will take ballet and jazz and, I bet, if they get to choose the color of their costume, she'll choose PINK again.
Thank you for stopping by and I know many of you are sharing your space where you create but I have to confess there is not a speck of pink to be found in my little studio. I'll have to share that another day.
And thank you to Beverly for hosting the delightful
where the spirit of PINK lives every Saturday.
