Tomorrow night marks the dawn of a new era in my double digit daughter’s world. It is time for her first middle school dance. It is a time of uncertainty in her world.
…the dance theme is Werewolves and Vampires. Yeah, not something you want to dress up as for your first dance. She has decided on a dress. Changed her mind three times. Decided on the best one to match her witches hat.
…the dance etiquette is that you have to accept every invitation to dance. She is adamant about not asking any to dance. And I think she is nervous about who or who may not ask her to dance.
…she is nervous since she is not a 100% sure what to expect. I helped her out by saying they are never as cool as they seem in TV shows. They are usually fun – its music you like and you are surrounded by friends.
Do you remember the your first dance? I don’t. I remember middle school dances in general. I remember being nervous. I remember planning what to wear. I don’t remember who I wanted to dance with. Or who I wanted to avoid dancing with. I should have wrote it down. I would giggle – and share with Tonia.
