The Ramblings of SD
Yesterday, SD11 informed SO and I that she is working on some choreography that requires her to stand on her toes, so she is going to get ballet pointe shoes for Christmas and learn how. Mind you, she has never taken any dance classes - she just likes to make up dances for fun. I tried to expain to her that Pointe isn't something you just learn, that it takes years to work up to and is physically demanding. But she's convinced she's going to learn on YouTube. I guess when she injures herself, I can say "told ya so".
Later at dinner, she was telling us about how BM and Stepdad want to retire in Hawaii (not sure how they will afford to do that on one salary). She then said that Stepdad would really like to move there right away, but they won't because they know that SO wouldn't want to have to move there, too. I really hope that they didn't actually mention SO in that conversation - what makes them think that he would follow them anywhere? We have a life here! I couldn't help myself, so I told her that realistically if they were to move away, she would have to visit during summer and holidays.
Where does she get these ideas???
