Will you dance with me Buddy?

I'm not sure how or where it happened, but our little girl is quite the girl.  Lately, she seems to have an obsession with all things pink - and everything that is pink, must be related to ballerinas. Every time we drive up to Nining's house, we look out over Turtle Cove at the apartments around the ring road.  The ones that are pastel in color - namely the pink ones - are now known as her ballerina house.  Emily, you know these apartments because you took a picture of them when you were here.

Ella also loves dancing like a ballerina.  Again, we've not enrolled her in ballet classes and I'm not sure where she's seen how ballerinas dance, but she just knows.  Maybe it's the Little Einsteins or Jojo's Circus - I'm not sure.  She has a distinct ballerina dance that consists of putting her arms up above her head and spinning around on her tippy toes.  


Dancing like a ballerina also means dressing like a ballerina.  Her ballerina skirt of choice is the white dress up skirt with pink petals and the black and white polka dot sash that Emily sent to her last year.  Along with her matching white dress up shoes, she's ready to go.

The only thing missing is her dance partner.  Much to Buddy's dismay, he is often asked to dance with her.  I don't think he would mind quite so much if it weren't for the fact that he was being asked to do ballerina dancing.   We had to chat with him about not hurting her feelings by saying no quite so forcefully when she asks him to dance.  Joey even offered to dance with her to make her feel better, but clearly she only wants Buddy to dance with her.

Tonight, he obliged.


It wasn't long before he asked us if we could put on something faster to dance to - so we switched from Van Morrisson to Michael Jackson's Thriller.  Then we started to have some real bum jiggling, floor wriggling fun.

Oh how I wish I could be there to dance with them. Especially if it's dancing to Thriller. Who doesn't want to shake it when you hear a Michael Jackson song. :) Thriller is one their Auntie Michelle's all time favorite albums...OOPS I mean CDs.
