Ahh that's lovely, well done to your dd smile

Wow fantastic!!!

So pleased for you all.

KatyMac Tue 13-Sep-11 22:34:52

Thanks - it came as a bit of a shock as she doesn't do Ballet

I am a bit unsure because of the hours she needs to put in

But it is good isn't it

So pleased for your daughter maybe munsnet should put a boasting thread on so we can all boast about our children.

oh wow Katy, well done DD

Well done however they are very strict about weight. my best friend got in and become anerexic. Is there not a better thread this can go on on as not to do with childcare.

That's fabulous, what an opportunity.
My sister tried, after years of ballet lessons, and didn't make it.

Best brush up on Billy Elliott!

popcornchicken - KatyMac has posted it here, because we all know her for her work (and fab advice) in childcare.

KatyMac Wed 14-Sep-11 08:56:20

popcornchicken, Most of these guys are my friends and colleagues; this topic is my equivalent of the coffee machine/water cooler/break room. Those of us working alone need to have adult contact sometimes and MN offers us this.

Fortunately she will be living at home, so I will have some control over her diet but it is an aspect that worries me.

Congratulations to your dd but how did she manage it if she doesn't do ballet?

popcornchicken Wed 14-Sep-11 09:31:44

Wouldnt facebook be better if these people are friends etc?

looneytune Wed 14-Sep-11 09:58:48

Great news Katymac smile

And to those who seem to have a problem with her coming into the childcare section to mention not childcare related topics, it's already been explained that we childminders are her friend but not everyone uses facebook and even if they do, not everyone knows who everyone is in RL iyswim.

Nothing wrong with you posting this Katy, really pleased for you both smile

crystalglasses - Raw talent

Goodness the one time I forget to put 'CM Club' I get told off & I invented it blush

lesstalkmoreaction Wed 14-Sep-11 11:00:01

Congratulations, you boast away, we all love hearing about good things that happen to everyone's families on here.

KatyMac Wed 14-Sep-11 12:53:45


MN changed the title - how kind

llllll Wed 14-Sep-11 13:15:39

Great news - my little girl hated ballet I tried when she was 2 1/2 she cried through the whole lesson, the teacher was not impressed x

BradfordMum Wed 14-Sep-11 13:29:43

Well done to your daughter!!
Feel free to come back here and boast about her as often as you like!!


KatyMac Wed 14-Sep-11 14:10:37


I got the letter about it all today <gulp>

nannynick Wed 14-Sep-11 15:11:50

Well done to your daughter. Given she does not do ballet, does that mean she will be doing something like Modern / Jive or will it be more a mixture of dance types?
