Scary Dances and Dangerous Pants

My conversations with my kids this morning....

Me - So is your class doing something for the Valentines Day Dance? (they usually perform a line dance for everyone on the stage)

Oldest Daughter - Yes (with a pouty face)

Me - What are you doing for it? (Last year it was "Achy Break Heart" Yikes)

Oldest Daughter - We are doing a square dance and it is SCARY!

Me - (I was very curious about the choice of word...scary. I will agree that square dances are scary simply because of the nature of the dance. LOL But I got the impression she had a different reason for it being scary.) Why is it scary?

Oldest Daughter - You have to touch the boy's hands! (with a look of yuck on her face)

Me - Oh, I see why that would be scary!

I later found out that they have been practicing on Thursdays. My daughter and her best friend came up with a plan to wear long sleeves so that they can cover their hands. LOL Apparently, I need to make sure she has a long sleeve shirt ready for tomorrow.

(found out that the sleeves we not long enough; but it was okay because they had hand sanitizer)


I got out my youngest daughters clothes for her this morning. When she saw her pants this was our conversation....

Youngest Daughter - Those pants hurt me!

Me - Why do they hurt you?

Youngest Daughter - They trip me! (mind you these pants are short like a capri but look like a skirt)

Me - How do they trip you?

Youngest Daughter - They trip me when I run on the track!

Me - You don't have gym today

Youngest Daughter - I don't know if I have gym and I don't want to wear them because they trip me.

Me - It doesn't matter, we just had a snow storm. I am pretty sure you will not go on the track.

Youngest Daughter - I don't want to wear them...THEY TRY TO KILL ME!

So, I went and got her a different pair...I wouldn't want her to be killed by her pants. Ugh! more....

Youngest Daughter - Do you know why I like toilet paper?

Daddy - Why? (because how useful it is in wiping, that is what he was thinking)

Youngest Daughter - Because of the pretty colors on the packaging!
