Ballet Dad

Julia Proverbs describes herself as a “fully-fledged ballet mum” in the Bay of Plenty Times (New Zealand):

“I have done the hair and the make-up. I have done the rehearsal drop-offs and pick-ups. I have gifted the Ballet Barbie on opening night in lieu of flowers. And I have mopped up the meltdown tears. Yep, it’s show time. Pre-school style.”

A fun story, much of which rings true. I’ve been a ballet dad since the spring. Makeup, though? The most Anna gets is a french braid and pink fingernails, and my wife takes care of that stuff.
