Dear Ballet World,

My daughter has arrived. She is armed with good training, tough teachers, enthusiasm, and her first pair of perfectly fitted point shoes. She is ready for you, are you ready for her?

This is the moment she went from being a dancer, to being a ballerina.

Her sisters were there looking on in admiration. I dressed Sof in her dance T-shirt and ballet shoe bow, and Lexi chose her tutu on her own. We dressed for the occasion.

I welled but did not let any tears escape my eyes. That would have been too much, really. There's a fine line between proud mama and OMG you're so embarrassing.

She's spent 10 years working toward this moment. You go girl! I'm so proud of you.
