Today Christian goes to his first dance! The summer camp he’s attending is having a “prom” to wrap up the summer session. Of course they told me about this event when I registered him at the beginning of summer, but it seemed like this day was soooo far away…and now it’s here.
Yesterday we picked up the last few pieces of his ensemble, which included his first neck tie. You would’ve thought he got a new toy if you measured the smile on his face. Seriously, I turned my back for a second and he was showing off his new tie to the guy managing the fitting room. I never figured he’d be so excited about buying dress clothes.
When we got home we tried everything on. I smiled and thought “he looks so handsome…wait…handsome? not cute?” At that moment I realized time was flying. The big relief is that the parents are their children’s date, so I get to enjoy this event with him. This will probably be the first and last time my son thinks it’s cool that I attend a dance with him, sigh.
