Musings On School Dances
My kids have enjoyed their fair share of high school dances. Boy asks girl (or vice versa) in a fun, creative manner, they receive an answer and they go have a grand time at the dance with a group of their friends.
As a mom, the hardest part of these dances was watching my oldest boy drive off to pick up his date, knowing I was going to miss out on seeing his date's dress and getting pictures of the two of them together. Or hearing ElemenoB talk about the guy she asked to such-and-such a dance but never getting to meet him because she had to pick him up.
It is really unfair that I miss out on half of the photo opportunities for dances my kids go to (unless I decide to be a stalker - which I only do when I know the mother of the other kid). But I have a solution!
From here on out I propose that all parents who get to take pictures of their son/daughter when the young man/woman arrives to pick them up should ask the young man/woman for his/her mother's email address and then send her some pictures of the two of them all decked out. Either that or call and invite the mother over to take pictures so she doesn't feel like a stalker.
Are you with me? Let's get it started!
