Before the dance we went to a friends house to have dinner (pizza!) and get ready. I am so thankful for a co-worker who worked late for me so that I got to be a part of this. A first dance is a pretty big deal.
It turns out that the "getting ready" part was the best part of the whole evening. So I'm especially glad that I got to be a part of it!
I got glow necklaces and bracelets for the girls to wear...
and another mother had glow in the dark body crayons.
The verdict of the dance once at home:
"It wasn't like dances on Full House mom. There wasn't a table with a punch bowl, no decorations, and no disco music...or 80's music. Hardly any of the other girls were wearing dresses AND you had to pay for food!"
She had lots of fun dancing with her friends but definitely has higher expectations when it comes to school dances.
Best part was getting ready FOR the dance. I am so proud of her and those that are closest to her. She has a pretty amazing girl tribe.
