Last weekend was the Delightful Daughter Ball at the girls’ school. It was pretty momentous for us because it heralded the end of an era – Caroline’s final daddy-daughter gala. It was also the only one she has ever attended with Martha Claire. The theme was the 50’s…but, you might could have guessed that:
Although I pushed for the Tucker crew to go with the ‘Mad Men’ look, alas, it was out of reach – Caroline was not touching those fancy dresses with a ten foot pole. I think the alternative ended up a thousand times better, especially since Soda Jerk is actually reusing his thrift-store pants from last year’s dance.
I stayed home and had a date of my own with the little man, so I didn’t get to witness all the fun and excitement of the dance, but I caught these two reliving some of the fun the next day in the kitchen –
Whoever thought a soda jerk would be so much cooler than The Fonz or Don Draper?!? I am one lucky girl.
