It's amazing how a pair of sequinned dancing slippers can transform an ordinary 4 year old girl into an exquisite ballerina princess.
Ruby got a pair of dancing slippers when we were in Byron Bay last Saturday. Max chose a blue glitter stick, which quickly became a lethal whacking stick, but that's a whole other story. When we got home Ruby donned her dancing slippers and danced and danced and danced. She practised her ballet moves for a long time on the front verandah and then announced she was "ready for her concert". We took our seats and Ruby surprised us all (mummy, daddy and max) with a very special ballet concert she had choreographed herself. Her performance, to a beautiful classic piano piece, made our hearts burst with pride.
Here she is twirling
It was very very precious.
