Oh, Mila

Mila loves dance recitals and competitions and all of the things. Watching her sister dance is in her Top 10 Things To Do in Pittsburgh. It falls just above Kennywood and right below Eat Candy. She will happily go to all of the things.

She begs, even. Not taking her is not an option, which is unfortunate because even though she's all in, she's still three years old (for another week!). She has the attention span of a senile goldfish. If her sister is on stage, she's good. If her sister disappears, SQUIRREL!

The good news about Sunday's recital was that Alexis had six dances. That means she was on stage for like 20 minutes of the 3 1/2 hour production. That's a lot! Mila made it through the first four pretty darn happy to be there.

And then she started to look for creative ways to entertain herself in between her sister's performances. There was the candy phase. There was the playing games on my phone phase. And then there was the flash her stuffed kitty in my face phase.

Apparently it's really funny to take a stuffed animal and shove it in my face. Mila did it over and over, cackling with glee every time I would nudge her arm back down. She enjoyed it so thoroughly that when her sister appeared on stage for her ballet performance, Mila kept on shoving the damn cat in my face. Even though the camera was there.

I have a lot of photos of a black blob. Telling Mila to stop only served to encourage her to do it more. I finally decided to try to compensate by messing with camera settings (so I could take faster photos), but haaaaaaaaaaa. I turned the dial the wrong way.

WELL THEN.

1. At least it's not a black blob. I managed to get a whole three photos of ballet that didn't include the blob!

2. It's artistic, or something. Yes, let's go with that.
