on point (also en pointe)

After an hour-long fitting session, we celebrated Kooka earning her first pair of pointe shoes. Smashburger and girly makeovers at were the logical choices.

Pointe shoes scare me. I secretly hope she becomes infatuated with contemporary and West Coast pop. Both are safer for her feet and cheaper for her parents.

But still, I am proud of the hard work, maturity and discipline she put in to get these babies.   I am less proud of my parenting skills and the fact that I not only allowed, but actively participated in covering my preschoolers face with roughly $50 worth of Urban Decay "Mildew" and "Loaded" eye makeup.
