Im the first to admit that as I grow older I take issue with alot more things in day to day life...but Im wondering if its just me being a grumpy old woman or whether others would feel the same.
My daughter who is 4 goes to dance class once a week... its a class where they do a bit of ballet, some jazz and tap. She loves it and the teacher seems nice enough although we dont stay to watch and shes always got back to back classes so theres no real opporunity to chat.
My issue is with the end of year concert and the costume in particular. We paid $50 deposit at the beginning of this term and when i asked what it would be i was told a gold tutu..i thought this was great as it would be good for dressups later. Anyway, the next payment was another $40 on pick up and it turns out it is a bra type crop top and tiny skirt both made of shiney lycra. Besides being tacky tacky tacky and do not worth $90 I really think its inapproriate for 4 year olds to be wearing a crop top. And dont get me started on the makeup. I mentioned it a couple of the other mums and they werent concerned at.
Also they are expected to perform at two back to back concerts at 5pm and then again at 8pm... finishing at around 10.30pm. DD is normally in bed at 7.00!
I was considering just pulling her from the concert but she really wants to do it. And now i think maybe im just over reacting and should just get over it.
Would appreciste others thoughts on this.
