Meanest mom-EVER

Okay.  So I'm the meanest mom ever once again, and I'm sure it won't be the last time I hold that title.   My 8 year old's school is having a school dance this afternoon.  I am not allowing him to go to this dance, which is for grades K-8.  Am I the only one who can't see why Kindergarten students need to be mingling at a dance with a bunch of hormone driven 8th graders?  He just innocently wants to go and spin around on the gym floor on his back so his 8 year old buds will laugh, but I think we can do that in another setting.  Just sayin'. 


  1. Hmmmmmm.... that's a tough call! The girls had a sock-hop at their school, and I went to take pictures. This was during the day and in connection with an MDA Hop-a-Thon. The PE teacher was in charge of the music, and everyone, K-6 danced to The Chicken Dance, Hokey-Pokey, Bunny Hop, YMCA, and a few more I cannot remember. Done right, I think the gym can be shared with the wide range of ages, but adding 7th and 8th graders to the mix might be pushing everyone's luck.

  2. I would be more likely to let him go if it were for a good cause....with the lesser grades attending too. This is just a monthly thing his school does to raise money for the band. And of course, you know "everybody else is going."


Thank you for leaving a comment! I really do love to hear from you!
