That started to change when I closed my dance studio when Jay was born. I had seen a lot of "dance moms" with their kids at competitions and travel performances and knew I didn't want that life for my kids. I thought I would continue to dance though and teach on the side a little. But my body didn't agree. I broke my feet 3 times and finally had to accept that what I loved and had done for as long as I could remember was not going to be a part of my life right now.
