To the manners born

Emerson takes ballet, and while she refuses to show me what she's learned after her class, she will bust out a brief demonstration at wholly inappropriate moments. Like this morning, when she decided to show me her curtsy as I was blow-drying my hair.

"Look, mama! Firss, you put dis foot back. Den you ben' your knees and walla!"

She means "voila." It's so adorable.

"That's lovely, Emerson. Very well done."

"Now you, mama."

Um, okay. First I put one foot back... then I bend my knees and crrrrrrackcrack!

Yes, that was my knees cracking. No ballet for me.
