Throwback Thursday - Baby Ballerina Barbie

Yes, I took ballet for a long time. Yeah, I was girlie…for a minute. I used to be able to bring my knee all the way up to my ear. All I can do now is the splits (not that I have much occasion to do them, just one of my many hidden talents).

Throwback Thursday - Baby Barbie Ballet Version

This is me in the the 2nd grade. I took ballet from when I was 3 up until I was in 3rd grade. I took it from the Cleveland Ballet, which is a pretty big deal up here because they’re a famous ballet school. I almost made it to their yearly production of The Nutcracker, but I quit right before I was eligible to be cast because we moved farther away from the school. If my mom ever shows you any of my ballet pictures, I’m sure she’ll tell you all about how I could bring my leg up to the side of my head and touch my ear with my knee. Sometimes she’d make me do it. How embarrassing…

Believe it or not, I used to be girlie…once upon a time. Yes, those are curlers. I made my mom put my hair up every night so I’d be wavy in the morning. Check out those jammies!….and pink, no less! ;)
