Everyday dose of Reality
This year for the Father and Daughter Ball, Isabelle and Amethyst are going with their dad. Last year it was Isabelle and Sierra, Nina has to wait until next year and she will finally be of age. Here is what I have noticed over the last few years while getting the girls ready …Dad is going to have a very hard time with boys showing up for his daughters. Granted, Isabelle is eleven and a half, in kid world that “half” is extremely important. I think the man can see truck loads of boys showing up. We know that is not how it happens, but I guess as a dad you do picture a truck load or bus filled with boys unloading in your front yard. Once Isabelle was all curled, and dressed she asked what he thought.
He had this squinched eye, furrowed brow and growled, “Too pretty. HONNNNNNNNNNNNNEY! Tell me there are no boys there.”
I laughed, ” No honey, there are no boys there. Now remember to get the pictures taken, pick up the flowers for the girls and you have dinner reservations at 5:30.”
“Dinner reservations? I am taking her out in public like this, in daylight? You know there are probably going to be boys out at this hour. Tell me why again I can’t take my gun”?
I told the girls to have fun, and gave Macgyver a kiss and to behave. I can just imagine the ball is filled with pretty girls bouncing around with their friends and at the table sit their dad’s. Watching their lives pass before their eyes, covered in sweat,spending the evening staving off a heart attack, knowing, dating is just around the corner.
