Zinashi had her first ballet class today. I'd like to say that she's a natural, but that would be lying. She was a natural at getting dressed and looking like the most adorable ballerina on the planet, but in the actual class she had a bit of trouble keeping up. I think that's just fine; it falls in line with the way she learns everything else, timidly at first, mostly watching what others do, and then when she is ready, she goes at it with gusto. I don't mind if she spends half the class staring at her feet the first few times, willing them to do the right thing. It's cute.
I'm already looking forward to next week. So is she.
