I've woken up on Thanksgiving morning and rushed into the living room to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade almost every year of my life.
And of course there were parts I loved and parts where I got up and went to the bathroom or helped in the kitchen. When was my sister screaming at me from the couch "they're on!!!!!"?
You guessed it - when the Rockettes came into view.
I've loved them the first time I saw them. So symmetrical! And shiny! And pretty!
So when I found out that I had an opportunity, thanks to Caltrate and Centrum (BlogHer sponsors) to go to Radio City Music Hall and learn some routines from The Rockettes, I jumped at the chance.
And I am so glad I did. It was a blast! The two Rockettes who taught our class were as tall and lithe and gorgeous as you would expect. They were also incredibly nice.
But the real delight was that I was kicking my legs up alongside other fabulous ladies in time to music from the Christmas Spectacular. I felt like a superstar dancer even though I was in vibrams and yoga pants.
Also, you should know that I could totally be a Rockette. I'm tall enough (between 5'6" and 5'10") AND I can kick my leg up so that my toes are as high as the top of my eye. I learned that today. So, if I had learned some sense of dance or rhythm or ability to move my body in a way that doesn't look like a cross between Gumby and a robot, I would definitely be auditioning to become a Rockette.
This is my first time posting using my iPhone, so I hope it works out!
Life at the intersection of making with your hands and feeling with your heart
Getting my super mom on with help from a @busytoddler tutorial. (Anyone trying to feel bad about themselves because they did not make #rainbowrice for their child should be clear that my house was an utter disaster and I think everyone ate cheese sticks for dinner so this could occur - not that it was particular hard, just, you know, life with two tiny humans.) #notactuallysupermomatall
Doesn’t get much cuter than this.
Incredibly disappointed to miss this today, but so grateful to be a part of this community at Full Circle Daycare and @ohavizedek and that my kids get to enjoy experiences like this, where people can present as they wish and where dress up is real. Thank you to all the teachers and to @dragqueenstoryhour @nikki.champagne and @emojinightmare.
