In her sixth installment, Rosenberg details the excitement and anxiety of getting the flower girl-to-be ready for the big day. (To see the last installment, click here.)
Two more days until the wedding and we are all so excited. My brother has been staying with us for the past couple of days and it’s been great. He keeps telling Rachel how great she is going to be on Saturday, so I am just hoping that he is right and isn’t disappointed. I was thinking about why it matters so much to me. I know her behavior that night is no indication of what she is really like, etc., because kids are so moody and at any given moment, with all the circumstances a certain way, they could say or do anything. That’s the beauty of being four.
But, somehow, if she walks gracefully down the aisle, looks beautiful and does everything perfect, it is a reflection of my parenting -- everyone will think I am doing a great job as a mom. Weird and stupid I know, but that’s how I feel. I truly think she is going to enjoy the night, but, I am still a little scared that she is going to freeze when it’s her turn to come down the aisle.
Rachel is on board with the dress -- hasn’t even mentioned the other dress. Four-year olds are very fickle people. I really hope she gets a good night’s sleep tomorrow night because Saturday night is going to be a very late night for her. Saturday morning we are both getting our nails done first thing in the morning. She is so excited about that. I am too. Then we are getting our hair done at 11 a.m. and then leaving for the wedding around 2 p.m. I hope she doesn’t mess her hair up on the drive to
I have to just relax and let go. Everything will be okay. It’s all going to be great and whatever it is, it is, right? Tune in next time for the post-game show wrap-up!
