Halloween Dance

having a hopping good time

ready to dance the night away
the grump-a-lumps set in
time for poopy-face
Like all well laid out plans there are going to be some setbacks. Friday night we had ours with Munch. After talking about the preschool Halloween dance for several days, Gi finally had her opportunity to put on her mermaid costume and dance the night away with her friends at school. We arrive to lively music and a fantastic show of kid-friendly costumes. Munch gets into the spirit and mommy and daddy are relieved that fun is being had. Then almost as if the good-attitude clock struck twelve, Munch turns into a sourpuss never recovering from her downward turn for the rest of the evening. What happened to our cheerful mermaid? Hubs and I go through our mental list of causes. Tired? No because she took a two-hour nap. Hungry? Not likely since she had a big bowl of strawberries and crackers at home. Thirsty? Not really since she refused a sweet cup of lemonade at the dance. What then??? Oh heck, we don't know! What we did learn is that when your child is determined to not have a good time, seize the moment and make a quick exit. Your deep and philosophical discussion about making right choices with your grumpy kid is always better had in the car ride home rather then on the noisy dance floor.
