Pappa Bear

For those of you who know me, you know that when it comes to my daughter I can be an over-protective Papa Bear.  Can't help it, she is my very reason for breathing, keeps  me in check, keeps going down the right path.  She is my "WHY".  If you don't get that reference, look it it up.

So I am writing this with a heavy heart.  Not because, I have done something, or there is something wrong with Becca.  No, I am sad because my daughter wasn't included in something...

Sounds stupid right?

Well maybe it is, maybe it isn't.

Rebecca dances competitively and does a pretty good job of it too.  Is she the best dancer, no.  Is she good?  I think so.

So when I hear that her studio is doing a number for the coming season and she is the only kid that doesn't get asked to join, I am pissed.  Now when it is just us (myself and Pam) who knows about it that's one thing, we can be a little pissed amongst ourselves and that is that, move on.  The problem arises when Rebecca brings it up.  She is "curious" as to why her and her friend Ella are the only two girls from last years comp crew who were not asked.  What makes that even worse is that Ella was asked... Becca doesn't know that and, hopefully, she won't find out.

Is it sour grapes on my part, could be.  But I think we deserve to know why our kid, who dances her heart out for her studio, was passed over.  Are we just there to help pay the bills?  If so please let us know and we will move her back to Rec and save ourselves an ass load of money.  If there is another reason, one that will take the sting out then please, just tell us.  But to not include a 10-year old girl in  a routine that her entire studio is involved in without even telling us why... that plain sucks.....
