Now wait....what 16 yr old would want a 2 and 4 yr old at her Sweet 16 Black and While Ball? Apparently, this awesome girl below whom I have had the pleasure of watching grow up since she was 4 years old. So after I begged and pleaded with her to change her mind, I gave in. And her and Roo danced the night away.
Even two hours later when I put on his PJs and tried to get him to go to the car, they were still dancing.
This is her mother, S, and I, who agreed with her husband that she did indeeed look like a real live Bratz doll. lol I love that woman, she has brightened up my life in so many ways over the last 12 yrs.
My very own John Travolta.
They played It Won't be Like this for Long by Darius Rucker.
My hubby danced with our daughter and then at the end is S, the birthday girls mom, and her dad.
Just seeing those three stages, a toddler dancing with her daddy, a young lady dancing with her dad, and then a grown woman with hers was so touching.
With the song playing in the background, we all were crying, even the teenagers. It is a moment I will remember forever.
It reminded me that it won't be like this for long, soon our little one with be like the birthday girl tonight and then she will be all grown up and dancing with my hubby at her daughters sweet sixteen party.
Lord, help me to remember that it won't be like this for long so that I will continue to treasure every moment, and not take a second of the time I have been given with my children, friends and family for granted.
