The dance performance is near and I realize today that my hands are clammy, thinking about going on a big stage and dancing in front of so many people.
Not that I haven't done that before. I did dancing on stage with other kids as a child and even won a dance competition in a club, out of 15 other couples, as an adult.
So why the clammy?
I usually have lots of practice sessions (except that one at the club which was just a spontaneous thing, being pick out of the crowd), and usually feel confident about my moves.
We didn't get much time to practice and I feel tumbly. I like to feel in control.
Of course today Saturday, in a few hours, we'll have another session, but gosh I just want to be confident in my moves so that I do not embarrass my precious daughter.
It is a daddy-daughter dance, but her father is working all this month and will not be able to attend. I was happy when he showed interest and deflated when I realize he wouldn't be able to make it. As things sit, I just want him to be involved as much as possible in his children lives before they grow up and realize he is away.
I'm honored to dance with my beautiful daughter. I LOVE dancing and if I could find a dance place, I'd go dancing myself. No clubs. Just a dance theatre.
So once again, I'll be on stage with the beautiful little ballet girls, twirling my moves.
Good thing I'm strong enough to throw her up on my back and up and around in the air and all that, but gosh I keep thinking I'll have to stop feeding her this month!!
There is so much to learn and so much to be done before the 25 and 26 and we know how fast the days go.
Dance moves to learn,
I must practice putting her make up on.
Think how to get the bun right.
Bags with costumes and food.
IDs and passes.
I should begin making a list because this clammy isn't going away and I cannot panic!
Have your little one been to daddy-daughter dance before?
Did you have one as a child?
