Just Being Audrey is about how Audrey has a passion for ballet, but eventually she discovers that she is too tall, and her height will always ruin her chances of becoming a prima ballerina. So, she decides to become an actress. But her most favorite job of all is being a mom. Isn't that sweet?
The real reason I bought four copies of this adorable book is because my homegurl is changing dance studios, and we needed a thank you/parting gift to give to her awesome teachers at Dance Connection Too. Like Audrey, Hannah wants to be a ballerina, and luckily, I don't think she'll end up being too tall. Thanks to some guidance from my good friend, Brandee (her daughter studied ballet for years), we're off on a new dance adventure at Ballet Etudes.
Don't you just love ballet? My homegurl will dance in the Nutcracker, Swan Lake, and Cinderella. (Not Black Swan, though, right?) I even tried on her pointe shoes the other day and tried to do a twirl-jump. Not so pretty.
P.S. Please make note of how my homegurl put a little piece of fabric under her costume so her cute little bellybutton wouldn't show. I didn't even make her do it, because, frankly, I love me a two piece. Remember, Mi Madre, when I wanted to wear a two piece so bad? How did you survive me?
