But, because I was just a vendor all week at a dance school's rehearsals and recital... I can honestly say that I am dead tired AND I had completely forgotten how time consuming and intense recitals are for all involved.
I am not saying this is a bad thing. My daughter was in a dance company for a few years and loved it.
But, it was all dance all of the time.
Recital is the culmination of all that.
You have dancers and moms that love it and are obsessed.
You just hope that those type moms and those type dancers are in the same family!
I have witnessed a happy dancer in five numbers happily at rehearsal for hours on end and her mother looking like a detainee at a prison camp.
I have also seen the typical stage mom coaxing and bribing her daughter to just stay a little long as the daughter threatens to leave "if it doesn't end soon!"
So, recital is over now and on to Lacrosse tournaments.
And trust me, you see the same thing there :)
