Ain't No Dance Mom

I'm sure you've all seen this show before...or if not, the previews are quite enough to get the gist of it, I promise.  Now of course, so-called "reality" tv is all about the editing, and this show certainly takes the cake for editing.  Rarely have women looked less ladylike on television.  Do I watch this show regularly?  Uh...no.  I've seen enough, thanks.  So why do I bring this up? 
Because of this lady right here.

This is my lovely momma.  Now in retrospect, I probably could have benefited from some dance lessons (yours truly, the klutz), but I am SO GRATEFUL that my momma was the farthest thing from a "dance mom".  My mother taught me by her example to be competitive and (I hope) fun, but not at the expense of others.  At all times I have known her, she has owned who she is and played to her strengths, all the while working on her weaknesses with honesty.  My mother is at all times genuine, approachable, and ladylike.  I'll never be much of a dancer, but I'd be happier to share half her grace in my lifetime rather than dance with the best of them on stage.  Television sure knows how to show us the worst of women, but take a good look...this is a lady.

Do the "Dance Moms" make you love your momma more, too?  I love Mom stories--do tell!
