We kicked off another year of ballet. This year it's "Big Girl Ballet" in the Big Girl Ballet room with the real hardwood floor, wall-to-wall mirrors, and a barre.
Abby came home from her first lesson feeling like a pretty big deal. I told her she's my favorite little ballerina.
"No, Mommy," she corrected me. "I'm a big ballerina now."
Bigger than last year, maybe. But she'll always be my little girl.
