If the glass slipper fits

Photobucket

This Saturday night, my husband will be taking my daughter to her first ball. Oddly enough, I seem to be the one most excited about it! My husband is asking if I'm sure just a shirt and tie wouldn't be enough and my daughter, never really being a princessy kind of girl, has no idea what a ball is. She is excited to wear a really pretty dress though! No, her dress wasn't made by singing mice, but by my sister - and please don't ask her to sing.

So what do you think? Is it just a mom thing to get so excited about things like this? I'm just tickled about the whole thing! I wish I had a good camera so I could take a gazillion pictures. And if there was a way that I could be a fly on the wall that night, that would be good, too. I hope to hear wonderful stories afterward. Okay, and maybe some funny ones.

Hmmm... If I'm the one getting her ready for the ball, does that make me the fairy godmother?

Oh yeah! Shaye and John went to Shaye's school's Me and Someone Special Dance last year- they had a ball and it was so special- sweet, sweet memories.

Is it a father-daughter ball? What an awesome idea. I would have been beside myself had something like that been available to me when I was little.

Oh, and yes. You're totally the Fairy Godmother. Better get your bibbidi bobbidi boo on. :)

Yes, it is a father-daughter ball. Neat, huh? I, too, would have loved this as a kid!
