The football game was last night. We won! Our home team is now 4-0.
Tonight is the dance. It is so much easier to get a boy ready for a dance than it is a girl. I should not gloat too much, The Short Chic will not stay short forever. Our largest stressor getting ready for this dance; getting our dry cleaning back from the dry cleaners. We took The Boys suit and dress shirt in on Tuesday and we were told it would be back by 2:00 on Friday. When I went to pick it up at 5:30 Friday, only the suit was back. They told me the shirt would be back Saturday morning. Well it was not. So they promised me they would deliver it by 4:00 on Saturday. ONE HOUR before we were to arrive at the date's home.
The rest of the day was spent doing regular household errands. We picked up the date's corsage. We grocery shopped. The Boy napped. We watched football. And the whole time I worried we did not have a back up for the dress shirt. 4:00 p.m. came and went. No shirt. Now they promised me by 4:20. The Boy leisurely got ready. Even The Husband was worried. He was so ready to get in his truck and go to the cleaners to yell at them. I asked that he wait. But I love the fact that he was ready to go! They arrived at 4:21 p.m. with our shirt.
It only takes a parent to get it rolling. Then soon all the boys and girls are posing. With a large amount of silliness!
