Rebecca went to her first dance tonight. It was the fall Halloween dance. There was a haunted house, refreshments, and glow sticks! I rode with Ms. M from the walking mom's and with her child. The kids seemed to have a good time. They were excited, chattering monkeys when we went back to pick them up. Rebecca decided she wanted to be a vampire.....like the kids in the Twilight books. That got me off the hook for an expensive costume. A little make up, some fangs and were all hunky dory! I think I did a good job on her make up. Not too gory, not too silly...... just the right mix of pale kid and undead minion! Anyway, she had a good time, and I was feeling safe with the fact that there were 3 cops at the dance to oversee any monkey business.
So, mission accomplished and now I am going to sit back and relax. Mommy mission accomplished!
