J slept til 10:30 this morning. W and I got some 1-on-1 time and played some computer games together and he "read" me a book. J blogged a bit and played some strategy games on the computer when she woke up. After dropping W off at school (we got his sweater back) J and I headed over to the dance studio for her first solo rehearsal. It was so great! She's got a very fast 80s song and I think it's perfect for her. P, her instructor, is friends with the owner and works in her own dance studio in another part of Queens. She told me she HAD to be the one to teach J her solo and I believe this is the first time she has taught any of her friend's students. Both her dds are in the older company at J's school and the oldest one works the reception desk. So I asked her today what made her mom teach over here. She told me that P loves the way J dances and knew she would be able bring out J's potential. It's awesome because P's younger dd is the one who wins all the Platinum ribbons and Titles at the competitions. Today J learned many of those winning moves. She was so focused and determined. I can't wait until the January competition when she'll perform. I was getting all teary today at the first rehearsal - I probably won't be able to keep it together at all when I see her on stage.
Then it was onto regular dance tech in the afternoon. W stayed with MIL finally and K hung out with me. She got to see her friends there (who just had their eyebrows waxed). K had a little eyebrow-wax envy and is now begging to get hers done. Sigh. K also told the boy she was "dating" that she didn't want to date him anymore. I told her to just cool it with the boys now. I got an eye-roll for that one.
We got some take-out Indian food for dinner and now everyone's watching Napoleon Dynamite. Bill has a gig tomorrow night but other than that there are no plans for the weekend. I may go have a drink with my friend, M, on Sunday but I just want to clean again this weekend. Once I get my digital camera fixed I will start posting pictures again.
