My rear-end fell asleep on the cold, hard bleachers. My stomach hurt as I watched my little girl skate out to the middle of the rink to begin her program. She broke into a big smile as she began performing to a song from one of her favorite musicals, Hairspray.
She won 2nd place.
Not bad for her first time out.
She's begging us to let her enter a second competition to be held in April. Her teacher wants her to compete on the spiral team, which evidently is different than the spin team (?) A spiral by definition is a circular movement, isn't it? Don't ask me about skating lingo. I'm just the nervous mom with a frozen butt sitting on the sidelines trying not to throw up.
Dinner last night: mac and cheese
