. . . but my sister was.  At least for a little while.

Ballerina PM RW

I don’t know that this particular phase lasted all that long in her life but there is clearly photographic evidence that at one point she had ballerina aspirations.

I just watched a Glee episode where Sarah Jessica Parker’s character said that all little girls dream of being a ballerina when they are little.  I can’t recall every having that dream specifically but I did like to dance around the house.  I might still like to.  Shhhhhh don’t tell.

While we’re here and because at some point you all might start to get bored with these Throwback Thursday posts, here’s another cute one of me and my sis.

Sisters PM RW

Dang I was cute, wasn’t I???  And those pigtails?  To die for.  I hope I can master the art of doing a little girl’s hair.  I stink at my own and this is definitely one fear I have of having a girl.

Must.  Master.  The.  Pigtail.

Question of the Day:  Did you want to be a ballerina when you were little?  The guys can answer this one too if they want . . . I look forward to whatever funny witticism the Father-in-Law comes up with here.  


  1. Just wanted to pop in and say that yes, yes you were dang cute:-)

  2. Where do you find these pictures???? The ballerina stage was kindergarten. Took the class at school.

  3. No denying you were cute as a kid, but… What happened?!? /wink

  4. I’m honored that you are waiting for my reply. The answer to the ballerina question is that I didn’t want to be one until I was nineteen. I performed in tutu and full makeup for our local draft board. They weren’t impressed, but I did get a two-year government job overseas.

  5. I want to see the FIL in his tutu!

    I did not have ballerina aspirations, but I did like “jazz.” I can do a mean pot-a-burr-ay (no clue what that actually looks like written down, but that’s what it sounds like!)

  6. I took ballet lessons for 6 years and was pretty good…so yeah, I guess one part of me wanted to be a ballerina, but also knew that my body wasn’t the right type. I am relieved I’m not (at least starting by) having a girl. I am bad with hair, fashion….best wishes for you! 🙂
