Yesterday was Embri's Father & Daughter Dance at school. She has always gone with her uncles and never seemed bothered by it. She didn't even tell me about the dance this time. I found the information crumpled up in the bottom of her backpack. But we went out and bought a cute new dress.
Yesterday morning, I woke up just before 6 to the sound of crying. I went to Embri's room and found her clutching the new dress and crying hysterically. I asked her what was wrong and she told me that she didn't want to go to the dance. She said it was for FATHERS and daughters and her father wouldn't be there. We just snuggled up and cried together.
She went to school and by all accounts, had a good day. I, on the other hand, didn't stop crying.
