Long story short, FH and I decided to do a joint father/daughter and mother/son dance so we could start the party earlier. Well, after struggling to find an appropriate song, picking one, deciding it wasn’t right, struggling some more and picking another one, and having my mom put the kibosh in it (“how will your dad dance to that song?” – he’ll sway, mom). I hit frustration overload and told her that if that song wouldn’t work, then the whole dance is cut. And that’s that.
I’m not upset, but I was trying to find a good song that was short because I thought it was something my parents wanted, when apparently (and I quote) “Nothing would make your dad happier than to not have to dance in front of a bunch of people.”
So, everyone’s happy and I just got 3 minutes back for the dance party fun. I just wish I hadn’t expended so much energy on something that none of us actually wanted.
(oh, and FH should be okay with this – I emailed him after the phone call this morning – since he wasn’t really sold on dancing with his mom to start with, and we hadn’t told her yet it was going to happen)
