Raj took the girls to their first father-daughter dance this past weekend. The dance was a school event, and a HUGE deal! I was so excited for the girls and Raj. I knew it would be a special night for them, and I wanted to do everything I could to help make it special.
The girls and I went shopping for dresses. I felt we were prom dress shopping. I really tugged all of my heartstrings. It gave me a weird to think about prom dress, then wedding dress shopping with them. The girls tried on what felt like 50 dresses! Their personalities really came out during this process. Maggie, my dress up girl, whipped those dresses on and off with quick ease. Evie, on the other hand, wanted me to help her get in and out of every dress like I was her lady in waiting! It really cracked me up!!
I tried to get the girls to pick different dresses, however that didn’t happen. They picked the same exact dress! Crack me up! I even tried to talk them out of matching dresses, but it wasn’t going to happen! I guess their special bond goes all the way to dressy dresses!
The day of the dance, I took them to get their hair done. If you know anything about me, you know I have no ability to do anything with hair! I decided it was safer to pay and have it done! The girls loved every second o fit! Maggie wanted hair that looked like Elsa from the movie “Frozen”. This ended up being just a french braid! We couldn’t talk her into doing anything else with it! Wow, that girl scertainly has her opinions! Evie wanted a “princess bun”! The hair stylist kept telling her that her hair may be too short and layered to do it that way. Evie would not hear of it. Luckily the hairstyle worked!!!
The girls looked like princesses going to the “ball” that night. They sure did have one proud daddy taking them on their “date”! My girls sure are learning early how they should be treated by men because their daddy is the best in the world! Raj got them each a corsage to wear. Melt my heart! How precious! He took them to dinner at Hibachi, since he know how much the girls love going there. Then, off to the dance they went! They dance, ran around with their friends and made memories to last a lifetime! Raj is already excited about next years dance!
We are so lucky for the blessings we have in our lives including our school and children!!!!!
Wow! Life sure has happened around here! My “babies” are now 5 1/2 years old! I’m still not sure where the time has gone. They’re now in KINDERGARTEN!!!! EEK!!!! This year (and hopefully only this year) they are in the same class. I will say they have an awesome teacher. God definitely had his hand in making sure they are together this year. I think it’s really stretching the kids. They are learning how to hand each other and friends in a group. It has definitely been a challenge. Their wonderful teacher keeps me completely in the loop regarding behavior and development. It’s wonderful.
Raj and I did decide to send them to a private Christian school. Financially, it may not be the the easiest, but it is most assuredly where they need to be!
I’m still working as a nurse midwife part-time! It’s a great job for me. I’m back with my first practice I ever worked with at Northside Hospital. It’s so wonderful to finally be at a place where I know I should be right now. I even caught the first baby of the new year this year in Atlanta! That’s definitely a first!!!!
The girls are taking gymnastics and loving it! I have finally found what Josh loves to do! He loves Legos! I even found a place where he can take elementary robotics. I know he will go nuts once it starts!!!
We have a new fur baby in our house. His name is Max. Often times we call him “Max the Cat” instead. He is a sweet, pure bred Himalayan. He reminds me a lot of my old cat named Moe. However, he seems to have more the temperament of Moe’s brother Joe! He’s definitely a sweet boy. However, I would be much happier if he liked to sit or lay with me. His favorite two people in the house are Josh and Raj. That’s no fair (insert pouty face).
We lost our sweet Zoe the summer of 2013. We all still miss her and talk about her. She sure was a great cat. Too bad the last year of her life she had to endure a rambunctious cat name Max who always wanted her to play. She was never really interested. I was lucky she would always snuggle with me. Oh how I miss that sweet girl.
Raj is doing great! I haven’t forgotten about him! He is super involved in the Computer Historical Society in our area. Now we have a reason for all the Commodore 64 and Apple 2′s laying around our house!!! Plus, it makes him happy, and I love that even more!
I’ll start posting more recent kid activity with my next post!
