This is on my mind...

Read more about this project here.


Caitlyn was supposed to take part in her very first ballet show tomorrow. We took this photo at the dress rehearsal venue and at this point she was still very excited. Then as we waited and her group's turn finally came, she just panicked and cried her little heart out. I think with all the people and the fact that this is this big stage and it is dimly lit backstage it must have felt all too daunting for my little 3 year old. So we made the decision that we would be withdrawing her from the show this year. I would have loved for her to take part, but I cannot force her and it is so important that she has to enjoy what she is doing - otherwise it is simply not worth it.

Lea, what a wise mum you are. She'll come back to it when she's ready but she sure is a lucky girl to have a supportive mum. She looks so cute!

Caitlyn looks beautiful and the outfit is stunning. Good choice to wait until she feels ready. xx
