My daughter (Miss2) and niece-who-lives-with-us (Miss7) are enrolled in dance school for the first time this year and I just can’t believe how time consuming it is.
I had no idea I’d ever be a mother of one, and yet I suddenly find myself being a stage mother of TWO.
Dance classes, costume fittings, rehearsals, dress rehearsals, more fittings, photos, more rehearsals, practice makeup, practice hair styles, real makeup, real hairstyles, MORE photos.
Any way I can find to save a little time (aka reclaim my weekend) is a godsend. That’s why I’d like to say a special thank you to a QLD based online retailer I discovered on Sunday afternoon (when I couldn’t be bothered wasting over an hour going to my closest dance shop to purchase toddler stockings in tan & ballet pink plus “shimmer” stockings in size 7-9).
A quick google brought me to www.dancestore.com.au … and two minutes later I had all three items in my shopping cart, at HALF the price I’d have paid in a real life store ($25 for baby sized stockings?? No way.)
But you know what impressed me most? This:
I ordered late on Sunday afternoon, the company is in QLD, I only requested standard post not Express Post… and they’ve already arrived first thing on Wednesday morning!
I love you Inter-ma-net!!
Next year I’m enrolling the kids in karate. Hope someone sells Gi’s online…
