Things I Learned Today / Wednesday, October 20, 2021

Things I learned today…

Brady was under the unfortunate impression that she does not sound Southern. Girl.

Big, huge props to y’all who get up with your kids at the crack of dawn to get ready for school. And bless the little bones of all the kids getting on the bus at 6:15 am. When I have to get up early, I’m mad. I just stagger to the shower and stand in there all pissed off. But hey…I work the swing shift. Getting up early is not it for me.

I’m always happy to answer questions at the studio, but some days I marvel at the questions I am asked.

I see my friends around town who own businesses, and they all have this kind of drunken, shell-shocked look about them, and they’re holding a cup of coffee. Same, Dude. Same.

I get to have joy all day – seeing little smiles, hearing stories, teaching firsts, fostering confidence – and then, in between, is the hard work, the stressful decisions, and the solving problems that aren’t really mine.

I hear that a former dance mom had talked bad about the studio today, and it made me giggle. What she said (to people totally in love with us and the studio) was silly, and the loyal people took up for me. People are nuts, I swear.

That’s all. We learn every day, don’t we?
