She dreamed a dream

She has recently started talking about her dreams.

Dimples: I dreamed a dream, Mama.

Me: What was it, baby?

Dimples: I dreamed that I was doing ballet at home.

Hubby: Really? What were you wearing?

Dimples: My ballet clothes. My ballet tutu, and my ballet shoes, and my ballet shirt, and my ballet backpack.

Hubby: Do you have a ballet backpack?

Me: No, she saw that in her dream.

Hubby: Oh, okay. So you had a backpack in your dream, but not in real life, right?

Dimples: Yes, but you know what? Life is but a dream! (giggles contagiously)

Maybe I should sign her up for the ballet classes again.


  1. Yes... and get her a ballet backpack so she can arrive like the prima ballerina she is :)

    Those pictures are as sweet as can be. There is nothing cuter than little girls doing ballet.

  2. Sign her up. I am thinking about signing my daughter up this summer. And don't forget the backpack.

    Hugs and Mocha,

  3. Aw, LOVE the pics!! Sign her up, for sure.

  4. "Life is but a dream!"
    So true! Out of the mouths of babes. Definitely sign her up!

  5. Okay, first, I hadn't realized until now that I'm not technically, formally following your blog. I read it!

    Isn't it weird when your kid's dreams start to make some semblance of sense, and aren't just a bunch of craziness they're making up as they recount the "dream"?

  6. OMG Jenny Penny! That is adorable. Thanks so much :)

  7. Give the girl ballet lessons. The dimples deserve to dance.

  8. My Mom enrolled me in ballet classes when I was only 4 years old. I stayed with it until highschool. Looking back, those were some of my best memories from my childhood.

    I hope your daughter finds as much joy dancing as I once did.


  9. I so enjoy your blogs!! LOL...they always give some kind of a smile!

    the joy of motherhood!
