We had fake zits and everything. I wish we had gotten a shot of her rainbow socks and red converse shoes..
Also, tonight there was a momentous occasion at our house.
Will got asked to the Sadie Hawkins dance!!
This is how it happened: The doorbell rang at 9:15, and I opened it to find a strange young woman standing on my front porch holding a rubber lizard and a poster board. She asked if my child was home, and since I saw the name "Will" on the poster, and the words "Sadie Hawkins", I put two and two together pretty darn quick, and figured out what she was there for. I rooted Will out of his bedroom (fortunately, he was still up) and told him he had a visitor upstairs. He asked if he shoudl be afraid, and I said yes, very.
When he got upstairs, the girl said she was only the messenger, and proceeded to give him a cute little poem in an Indian accent about a lizard and going to the dance. Then she handed him the lizard and the poster which said "Will, (picture of a whale) you go to Sadie Hawkins with me? We will have a turtley good time!" and a Ninja Turtle puzzle with a note that said to put the puzzle together to find out who asked him. He already had a pretty good idea who it was, but we put it together, and it was from Kelli, a friend from orchestra.
His first date! I'm way more excited than he is. I think he is more excited than he is letting on. Now we have to come up with an intriguing way of answering her. I'm thinking iguanas.
