Lucy's last pic with all her baby teeth
The Snaggle Tooth Princess was taken to a Royal Ball with the King last Thursday. Our town's Parks & Rec center holds a fund raiser each year called "Daddy Daughter Date Night." Bert and Lucy attended this year and had a blast. They danced for nearly two hours straight. Before they left for the night, I wanted to take some pics of Lucy all dressed up. As you can see, she thought my picture taking was a little obnoxious. I think my parents have some of me making the EXACT same faces before one of my proms. Bert bought Lucy a corsage to wear, since this was an extra fancy occasion. I thought she would be all over that, since it was PINK. She looked down at it and said, "Umm, Mom. This may have been in style when you were five, but I don't think it is anymore." Ladies & Gentlemen, please welcome the future host of "What Not to Wear."
As they were walking out the door, I was reminded once again as to why I married Bert in the first place. I always knew he would be an incredible Father. I over heard him say to Lucy, "I'm the luckiest Daddy who will be there." "Why" she asked, excitedly. "Because I have the prettiest date by far."
This was not the first "date" for Bert and Lucy. Bert has always enjoyed taking her out, just the two of them, and plans to make it a regular occurrence so that one day when Lucy is old enough to date (yikes) she will know how a girl is supposed to be treated. Bert has other ideas to help keep down the worry during the dating years. Besides bench pressing 300 lbs as her date walks into the house, he plans to always make Lucy go "Dutch." This is so no boy would "expect" anything in return. With a Daddy like hers, and three brothers right behind her, I don't think we will ever have to worry about any boy getting fresh with Lucy! Especially since her brothers have had so much practice rescuing their favorite damsel in distress.
