For some last night was an array of glittery dresses, freshly painted fingernails, and a lot of hairspray. The dresses were chosen carefully and the anticipation of being asked to the dance had been the focus since January.
For my girl it was sweat pants, a pony tail, and an 80’s themed community center dance for people with disabilities. The reward for staying 30 minutes was a delicious, velvetty goodness chocolate ice cream cone.
It was perfect.
