Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Ways Motherhood is Like Being a Dancer

  1. You are constantly analyzing your performance. 

  1. It requires great strength, flexibility and endurance.

  1. Your body will never be the same.

  1. Someone is always telling you what to do, how to do it and to do it again.

  1. You have to go on, because you probably don’t have an understudy, and if you do s/he’s under-rehearsed. 

  1. When you’re off balance someone could get hurt. 

  1. No sitting allowed – unless you’re engaged in something that requires sitting.  That's really and truly requires it...

  1. Some things good or bad, are just a function of genetics. 

  1. Rejection is arbitrary; genuine praise is hard won.

  1. It’s a labor of love, and you can’t imagine life any other way.
