Lucy’s favourite thing lately is to put on her tutu and dance around, spinning and trying to arabesque, and singing long, complicated songs. I remember doing this for my grandparents – it’s one of the few memories of my maternal grandparents that I have. I love watching Lucy’s pride in her performance, and I love knowing that it was probably a sweet moment for my grandparents and not as embarrassing as I always felt.
