...too inform you, that I have to spend more money on ridiculous stuff.
I love to watch Thing 1 dance but sometimes I swear, her dance school thinks you can just pull money out of thin air. I went last night to pick up her costumes and the lady at the desk ask me if I got the note for Hip Hop Costumes. No was my reply because Thing 1 said her teacher told them they were doing like Christmas and just putting their own together. Well, technically it's put together by us but they want a more "uniform" look so now we have to buy specific items. GRRRR!!!! She can wear her hoodie but she has to have a white t shirt(no big deal because we have a ton), black sweats(not gray like she already has), and instead of just wearing her regular tennis shoes(like they were originally going to do) they now need black hip hop sneakers.
Oh and they have to have their "costume" approved by next Tuesday.
Are you *@%*~! kidding me? I try to buy her shoes from Discount Dance supply or off Ebay because the shop at the school charges way more than what I can find there(they really hate that I take her there at the beginning of the year and have her foot sized in the different shoes she needs, then I know what sizes I need to find online) The cheapest shoe they have at the store was $40. I just looked on Discount Dance and the cheapest with shipping will cost $45. Looks like the school will get even more money.
Oh and another gripe. She has 3 separate recitals. And we only get 4 free tickets. So I will have to pay for 2 extra recitals so I can video them for everyone(still cheaper than buying a DVD for $40 a piece) Double GRRRR!
