Mindset is everything. And I feel like I just witnessed a major shift in the mindset of one of my children this year. She’s more present. She’s more disciplined. She’s not getting as frustrated or discouraged when something is hard. She’s having fun. Whether it’s maturity, a little tough love, amazing role models in her coaches and teammates, or a combination of all of the above, it’s fun to watch! As we were walking out to the car after rehearsal, I told her how much I enjoyed watching her practice and how proud I am of her. She turned around, smiled, and said...”that wasn’t my best work. That will Be tomorrow”. My baby is growing up. 😍😊❤️ 💃 #mindset #dance #pom #dancemom #competition #growingup #maturity #levelup #toughlove #soproud #girlmom #momlife #instamoms #happy #thatsmygirl #happysaturday #dreambig #edf #elitedanceforcemi

My favorite dancer and I are going to see The Nutcracker! Ballet is my favorite. So I’m glad she was excited to go, too! Nobody else was very enthusiastic. It’s rare that I get one on one time with my older girls, so this is really nice. And we get to support our #elitedanceforce dancers! 💃 🐭 ❤️ #nutcracker #ballet #dance #dancemoms #lovedance #girlmom #qualitytime #priceless #family #sundayfunday #elitedanceforcemi

Some of the best moments of the weekend were not dancing at all. It was the time that the Quest faculty took to mentor these young dancers and inspire them to be better, push harder, expect more of themselves. This is what it’s all about. #lifelessons #inspiration #questintensive #elitedanceforcemi #eliteteam #beelite #beuncommon #cantonmi #technique #ballet #noshortcuts #champions

Ummm....what happened to my baby?!?! First day of dance! First class: Hip hop. She swore she didn't want to do Hip hop. Swore she would hate it. But her teacher enrolled her anyway this summer. Guess what? She LOVES it! Never know until you try! Seven classes for this kid! It's gonna be a different kind of year! But right now she looks WAY too grown up. 😭😭😭 #dance #dancemom #hiphop #ballet #jazz #tap #lyrical #dancer #dancerlife #bun #mysecondhome #elitedanceforcemi #edf
