She's a Wicked Girl
My daughter, Kate, woke up this morning and started hyperventilating.
No, not because she had a dentist appointment at 8:50 AM and she hasn't been flossing.
No, not because today is report card day
(which was enough to make me have to run to the bathroom ALL DAY when I was her age, because I knew how much trouble I would be in when I got home. And my brother always had perfect grades. And couldn't wait to show his report card. So I couldn't even hide it. Jerk.)
She was hyperventilating because after months of waiting, it is WICKED night at Baltimore on Broadway and Rob and I are taking her.
She has been listening to the soundtrack for well over a year and has been beside herself counting down the days.
So tonight Rob and I will take our little tween out for a night on the town. Dinner with just us and a Shirley Temple. Cushy seats in the theater between her mom and her dad.
Music that rips her little heart out.
As for me, I will pretty much miss the entire thing. I will be too busy watching my little girl, who is becoming a woman right before my eyes,
