MiniMe has been taking dance lessons this year. She really loves it and has taken to making up her own routines. Generally they involve making up actions to the song lyrics. Very cute.
She has a concert coming up and I am surprised by the time and cost involved. At her level it only requires me to go and pick her costume up on a designated day and to take her to a half an hour dress rehearsal. The costume is costing us $55 but I then have to get white boy leg underpants and special make up! Tickets are $22 for an adult and $15 for 3 and up! If we want the privilege of watching the production again we can pre-order the DVD for $45 (my concern here is the MiniMe might get stage fright and we will have a DVD of her looking at the floor!).
How do people do this for multiple children and multiple extra-curricular activities?!
