Welcome to the Chinese Mom Club

What did we do yesterday?

Let's go baby girl.

You have been waiting for this day for some time.

 Your very first dance class!!

Considering that you could barely walk when we first got you, this is a monumental moment.

And you look beautiful with your butterfly wings!!

Notice something unusual with this picture??

Maybe you missed it.

Elly's 3 -4 year olds dance class is an ALL CHINESE GIRLS CLASS!!

Not intentional.  When I got there, the class before her's had, you know, 11 girls and I didn't notice anything unusual about it.  Your average range of girls.  The class next to it...same thing.

It just so happens that this 3 -4 year old class happens to be Chinese.  And there is another girl joining them next week, that missed it this week because...that's right...she was on her way home from spending the summer with her grandparents.  IN CHINA.

It is comical.  I am the only hispanic mom.  And can I say, I was a bit nervous at first when I noticed the phenomenom.  How will they treat me?  What do they think?  Do they resent me?  Do they realize I am her mother and not the care taker?

Well, as it turns out, I have become part of the Chinese Dance Mom's Club!!  They totally accepted me and welcomed me in!!  What lovely ladies ( and grandfathers and aunts.  I am thinking they are part hispanic, bringing the whole family along for their 3 year old's dance class)  

OH!  and PS.

Elly was the best dancer there!!  And before you become impressed or think I am slightly biased, the only reason was that...

She was the only one who understood English, as the other little girls are spoken to in Chinese at home, and had a hard time understanding directions.

That is pretty amazing. What an interesting phenomenon. And they are just as adorable as can be. I can't believe how well Elly is doing already. Her English, her physical development. She has come a long and wonderful way hasn't she?

I love that!! So cool! My Chinese mom friends have embraced me warmly too. It is such a blessing!

The pictures are simply delicious. Those girlies are darling!

Lucy is chattering away at me as I type this and I can't even focus. :)

I sure hope it makes a lick of sense!

Oh my goodness! That's just the sweetest thing ever! God is so amazing -- He just orchestrated that so perfectly! She looks so cute with all the other little girls!

I think I need an Asian daughter now... let me get Tucker home and then I'll start working on my husband for the next one! haha
