The Valentine’s Dance

The PCP was a complete doll to be my date the club’s annual Young at Heart Valentine’s Dance.

When I came down the stairs, he presented me with a sweet pink corsage, thoughtfully chosen with a little help from his Daddy.

We dined, danced and talked.  He opened the doors and used the very best manners, and I couldn’t have been prouder to have him on my arm.  He taught me Gangem Style and I taught him the Macarena.  I conned him into a few slow dances and he got me to play Simon Says.  You know, we were pretty much a match made in heaven :-)

And, at the end of the night, I got a very proper kiss on my cheek as we were recounting the night’s events to Honey.

When I thanked John for one of the best dates of my life, he replied “You’re welcome, Mommy.  But it wasn’t a REAL date.  It was more like a scrimmage date.”

I totally get what he means in his seven year old way of saying it.  And perhaps it was a “practice” date for him, but I assure you it was very real for me.  In fact, I look forward to many, many more “scrimmages” before sending him off for “real”  :-)

  1. What a sweet night you had! Even a corsage! Just watch out, when the PCP get s older he will have the girls flocking to him, with his gallant manners. I just love that last pic………… look like you are in heaven!

  2. So very sweet! Made me teary eyed. I wish we had a dance like that in my area to do with my little guy. My husband and daughter have a father/daughter gala, but nothing for moms and sons. LOVED your dress as well! Lovely "couple"!
