Daddy Daughter Dance

I got the pleasure of attending my first Daddy Daughter dance.  The Girl was very excited as was I.

She wore her fancy dress and I was dress in my best tie.  It was at the school and when we arrived there was a path of chalk drawn hearts leading to the door.  Granted it was in the gym which was nicely decorated, she immediately saw her friends and took off running around the gym.  That is one thing my kids do in any gym is run.  I believe it is a standard feature in my children.

I did get into a bit of trouble as I didn't get her a wrist corsage.  It was about 50/50 on corsages, but she was a little mad.  She got over it quickly when we found the appetizer table.

Granted this was the entire school dinner wasn't served until 6:30 and we were hungry since the Girl usually eats at 5:00pm.  Dinner was good and it was off to dance.

Everyone knows I have smooth moves like a Rhino.  Fortunately for me the Girl thought I was great as her dancing mostly consists of swaying, bouncing and jumping.  After many songs of jumping and bouncing they finally played a good Daddy Daughter song.  I picked up my Itty Bitty and we danced together.

After that one song she was done with me for a bit and went running and dancing around with her friends.  I was able to get back in the fray a bit later as the Chicken Dance came on.  Lets just say I tore it up and if there was a Daddy trophy for best chicken dance it would be on my shelf next to my golf trophy.

Soon she was very tired and it was time to go, after all she is still 4 and it was at least an hour past her bedtime.

It was a great night for her and I.
