Today she ran in from school and threw down the letter onto my keyboard.
"Look mum, look! I got the letter."
The letter that she so proudly waved before me was an invitation to join the elite Leicestershire school children's dance project. The same one that had allowed my own dance training to flourish when I was a child.
It is times like these when being a mum if the best feeling in the whole wide world.
Well done honey. I am so proud of you.
