I have been dancing ballet since kindergarten and continued for 11 years. Now, I wasn’t an extraordinary dancer, but I truly enjoyed it. One of the reasons I loved dance practice was before class was that my mom would always take me to the Burger King across from the dance studio. I always anticipated the adventure that lied passed those doors. Now, this isn’t any sort of review about Burger King (just so you know!).
My mom worked during the day so the only time I spent time with her was when she would drive me to my various extracurricular activities. Burger King was one of the only times when we would sit down and hang out…a time for just and me and her. We’d talk about anything I had on my mind. Surely I was excited about all the new toys that came with the ‘Kids Meal,’ but looking back on these times, I barely remember a single toy from all those years.
I only remember laughing with my mother. And for those great memories, I thank her.
