🔨 My Daughter Pointe Shoes(Ballerina Corner)🔧

When my daughter Snowflake ❄ started wearing pointe shoes(Age nine),I also started learning to sew them. Here is some tricks i learned from other ballet moms (that have  older ballet daughter than mine). Here is step by step procedure how I do it.

Above is additional materials you need for sewing the pointe shoes.
FYI:
》I used dental floss as thread to sew the garter and the ribbon because its more durable and its not penetrating  on the outer layer of the other side of the pointe shoes.
》 I use lighter to burn both ends of the garter and ribbon so it wont snag.
》 Putting rubber/leather capping(Optional ) on the tip of the pointe shoes to make it last(I usually put it before but instead my daughter use Leukoplast (plaster used in injuries)

My Idea of Happiness 👪

I am driving on the way home when  my tears fall on my face. I was upset earlier due to an argument (preferred not to tell who). Im asking myself if Im doing a good job as mom? My husband(his pretty amazing)console me that never ever question myself being a mom because its the toughest job in the world and no one can only fit that job except a mother(what he always said when im upset or delve into  mood swing) Then I looked back on myself and counted what I’m doing everyday and what I did in the past that brought me here; in this position where I am now.

My Journey to Middle Age Woman

There was a saying” Life begins at forty”.

I’m wondering so much of this saying before i reach forty. And now I passed forty I didnt see much of that saying except changes in my moods,behavior and my physical body. The saying sounds positive when you listen about it yet in my reality,it’s superficial. My life begin long time before I turned forty. Now is another chapter of it, where your body no longer listen to your metabolism which  makes your body easily change and develop cellulite. I envied those women who never gain weight(how much they eat or concieve children)in my thoughts ^How gifted they are^. On my behavior on the other hand; a lot of changes in it that sometimes stressful.I overthinking  for everything that sometimes it’s even nonsense. Attack of sudden mood swing that makes me sounds like I have split personality(one time joke coming from my children)
