My first Homecoming Dance
Okay, I am a sappy mom. I admit that. Any school program where three year olds are singing, I am crying my eyes out. If it's my child, all the more. Tyler, my fifteen year old is going to two homecomings. Both with girls that are just friends. One last weekend, one this weekend. He is wearing his dad's black suit. I have bought a black shirt. One girl accessorized with hot pink, so I bought a hot pink tie. The next girl is wearing yellow, so I bought a yellow tie. Last friday, Tyler did a dress rehearsal. He came down stairs, all dressed up and I admit it. I cried.
He looked me in the eye and said, "NO!". I am not allowed to cry, even when he leaves. He is so grown up and he looked so handsome. I cannot wait to post some pictures. I was so proud of him and all he did was dress up.
I know, as the mother of four, this is only one of many homecoming dances. And proms. And everything in between. I love it. Pictures, corsages, all that jazz. No one ever asked me to homecoming, so I never went. Girls today don't wait, they either go with their friends, or ask a boy that is a friend. Love it. No more anxiety. You go girls.
So what new milestone are you hitting this year with your kids? Is it first steps, first dance? Share the love.
God bless you and yours.
