The Princess and The Prosthetic

Tiny Dancer

November 22, 2019 in Warrior Princess - No Comments

I don’t think I have the right words to describe how I felt last night.

Last night was Callie’s first dance recital with CBSA’s production of The Nutcracker.


I pretty much cried through the whole thing.  Seeing our baby girl on stage was a dream come true.  A dream that I had quietly tucked away in my heart years ago with the quiet understanding that it probably wouldn’t happen.

Until we were welcomed with open arms at CBSA.  Where Callie is celebrated for her unique abilities and talents.  Where she is part of the organization and supported fully.  Where she is able to flourish and bloom on stage. Where she is able to step into the spotlight and SHINE.  Where she has been able to make some new friends and find a new community that loves her.  Where she has to practice and learn a new skill in an adaptive way.  Where they have been willing to invest the time to help her grow as a dancer.  Where she can be graceful AND strong.  Where she is able to showcase that anyone can dance and that anyone SHOULD be able to dance.  Where she is able to do something that she has always wanted to do but never been given the chance to.  Where she can shine her beautiful light on the world.


I never figured myself for a dance mom.  If you had told me six months ago, she would be dancing on a news program and on stage with a major dance company, I probably would have laughed in your face.  But you can bet there is not a mama more proud, elated, and overjoyed to see their ballerina take the stage than me.

Because when you put out positive things out into the world….they come back to you.

When you have courage and kindness…good things happen.

When you are inherently grateful for your perfectly imperfect life…..good things happen.

When you have the best friends and family…..good things happen.

When you are willing to work hard and never give up…..good things happen.

When you cheer for others and have an abundance mindset…..good things happen.

If you bring your own sunshine…..good things happen.

Let’s go baby girl….the world has been waiting for someone just like YOU.

Hi Y'all! I’m Jaime, a proud working mama, author, girl boss and wifey to an ultra-adorable husband. I am a huge book nerd, I drink coffee like my life depends on it, and run on dry shampoo and Amazon Prime. Leopard print is my favorite color. I am a story teller at heart and this blog is a virtual scrapbook of our crazy beautiful life. I'm a Type One Diabetic and our little warrior princess Callie is a lower limb amputee. By sharing how we’ve chosen to flourish in the garden we’ve been planted in, we hope you can take some small nuggets of hope, inspiration, and laughter. We are so grateful that you’ve found us—welcome to the fam. We embrace our perfectly imperfect lives and don’t let the doctor’s appointments, spreadsheets, speaking engagements, 10th birthday parties to plan, housework or date nights overwhelm us. Those things are just the beautiful reminders of all the blessings in our lives. Read More
