Davis went to his first dance last night. It was a glow dance for 5th graders only. Parents were not allowed to stay. He wasn’t even sure he wanted to go, but we may have forced him a little bit. He actually wore a dress shirt and shorts versus the athletic attire that has become his norm. After the dance, I asked lots of questions like – Did they play the Electric Slide? Yes. Did they play they play the Cupid Shuffle? Yes. Did you dance? Not really. He did tell me that they played the Whip and Ney Ney and that he may have done the moves “a little.” And, that his ears hurt and he was deafened momentarily. Not from the music though, from all the screaming. Girls I assume. That’s what they do for any exciting occasion it seems, scream. All in all though, I think it was a good experience.
Silas has become obsessed with reading. So much so, that he gets angry if he can’t read. For example, if we go to bed late and there isn’t anymore time for reading, he grumbles and complains and downright protests. A few days ago, Silas fell asleep before one of Davis’s baseball games. He was so asleep that I had to carry him from our room to the car. Just before arriving at the baseball field, Silas wakes up and asks, “Did you remember my book?” Of course, I did not. We parked the car and he said, “I am NOT getting out of this car without my BOOK!” He did eventually get out but only after his dad figured out a way to access his book on his phone.
