Big Girls Go To Dance

Grace is (everyone, please knock on wood) potty trained.  She's gone back and forth between the concept since around October.  It has been a challenging time, to say the least, because Little Miss is pretty strong willed and hard-headed.

After a long Christmas break of many, many tears and struggles, a light clicked when an incentive was presented.
Grace has been asking to go to a dance class for several months.  I always tell her she can go when she is four years old.  All of a sudden, one day I had a thought: "Hey Grace.  Big girls go to dance.  And big girls do their business in the potty.  If you want to go to dance, you have to be a big girl!"

Aha.

Grace worked so hard for about two weeks and mastered the potty and earned herself a dance class.
She LOVED dance and is now begging to go on a regular basis.
There should be an opening in the studio this summer and I think we will enroll the new little ballerina who prefers to go by "Clara" from the Nutcracker.
