The Von Trapp Family Has A Rival

And to add a little levity to your day...

Big Sis' ballet and tap recital is this weekend. She's been practicing every afternoon, and low and behold, the twins have managed to pick up not only the steps, but the words of this astoundingly inappropriate song for a group of 5 -year-olds to be dancing too. But hey, what can you do...



I asked her on the way home from dance class the other day whether she wanted to take ballet again next year, and she said, "Well, Mama, I don't know. They make me move my feet too much, and my feet are really kinda' tired. I think I'll take gymnastics instead." Alrighty then.

Argh, they're so adorable!!!

And the Shoop-Shoop song, well, that's cute, too! Maybe inappropriate, but it was really such an innocent time... :)

this is hilarious -- my favorite bit is when the twins start in on the shuffle-ball-change...they may not be the fastest talkers in the east, but you'll be able to make money with their stage careers by the time they're three...and that's somthing!

very cute! however, what part of her body does she think she'll be using for gymnastics if not her tired feet?

OMG - cutest thing EVER! I love how one of the twins gets tired shuffling and has to hold on to the wall (hehe) So CUTE!

My 4 YO won't let me put her in a dance class coz she doesn't like when everyone "looks" at her while she's dancing. Fair enough!

SO cute. My almost-five-year-old had her first ballet/tap class Thursday (we just found the teacher). Am looking ahead to this time next year when that question comes up?

Also, at age five my older daughter's favorite song was kind of a lesbian anthem. Just go with it. :)
