I've blogged before about my 9 year old's dancing feet before. There was this post back in May of '07. Back then he was the only boy taking a tap and ballet class with twenty or so girls.
Well last night his school was having a sock hop or sorts for the 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders. He attends a small private Catholic school so we are talking about a total of about 50 kids here, and even though they are in different grades they all know each other.
My son comes to me before the dance and says, "Dad, i want one of those frilly shirts to wear. And one of those black coats."
At my strange look he added, "You know with the thing that goes around your middle. Like grooms wear when they get married."
"Yeah," he said. "So I can impress the ladies.
Of course I dashed his fashion dreams when I told him that's not what you wear to a sock hop.
Of course he had a fabulous time despite the fact he only got to wear jeans and a white t-shirt.
Yes, that is my son shaking his moneymaker to the YMCA.
And here is a picture of him looking sad when the festivities ended.
He acquired the hat and shades at the dance.
