Hand Me Downs, from oldest sister to middle sister, Ambria found Mariah's beloved TAP SHOES. (Mariah never took dance, nor has Ambria. These were a garage sale find years ago--bonus!)
Ambria was ecstatic about her "new" shoes. Mariah, not so much.
Mariah had a difficult time watching her sister prance, dance, and tap all around the house in her new found treasure. Mariah's jealousy grew but after a few days, the emotions surrounding the shoes subsided.
Ambria hasn't taken the tap shoes off her feet in days! I made the mistake and allowed her to wear the tap shoes to a store and a restaurant.
Ambria had a blast creating her own dance routines in the store aisles and beside our restaurant booth, but my face grew red.
Our quiet, timid Ambria was being LOUD. She wasn't ashamed. She was proud. She didn't want to quiet down. She was beaming! I'm sure half of it was her having fun, and the other half was her trying to make Mariah more jealous.
