First school dance

Posted on

Tonight our growing way too fast 12 year old went to her first junior high school dance with her best friend. She even wanted me to do her hair for her and let me help her pick out her dress. I’m sure that won’t be the case in the years to come so I’ll cherish these little moments while we have them. Probably the most comical realization as we dropped the girls off was that in that same vehicle was our grandkids watching their aunt go to her first dance. Life really does change so rapidly. When the girls got home I got to see all of their pictures and videos they took. Safe to say they had a lot of fun dancing the night away!

First sleepover

Posted on

Mad had another first. Her first friend spending the night. They got so excited when I told them she could stay the night. Aside from Lala next door Mad really only has boys for friends. So she hadn’t really had the opportunity for sleepovers. Around 10pm she came to me crying. She said she was scared to have a sleepover and wasn’t sure what she was supposed to do. I explained to her that typically that nervousness comes when you sleep at a friends for the first time, and not the other way around. After a little talk she was better with the situation. Over all she had fun, however she did decide that maybe she’s to young for sleep overs yet, and she would rather stick to playdates. Turns out Mad is so used to going to sleep early and getting up early that she was overwhelmed by having a friend want to stay up late having slumber party fun. Not too horrible of an outcome for two eight year olds:)
