Let The Insanity Begin

Maddie's been cast in her very first
production of "The Nutcracker", as a Sugar Plum Fairy Attendant.
She plays a tiny fairy who never leaves the Sugar Plums side,
wearing a tiny little tutu with tiny little flowers in her hair and
lots of glitter sprayed all over her.

Translation: A way to sell a dozen more tickets.

I can't help but realize that the very first time I was in a
ballet of any kind - Christmas or otherwise - was when I was ten.
Yes, ten. I can't quite believe they start them this young these
days. Saying "no" was, of course, an option; but not a very
palatable one, since she's got this pesky habit called "reading"
and read the casting call for herself, seeing that girls age 6 and
up could audition. It's not going to be too bad at this age - a
few Saturday afternoon rehearsals and four shows. Plus I've got my
ace up my sleeve - my mom plays the grandmother in the ballet every
year, so I have a built-in carpooler and backstage babysitter (hi
mom! Love you!) for this thing.

And who am I kidding - I'm going to take more photos that day than
the papparazzi on Oscar night.
