However, on Friday afternoons she's typically really tired. Sometimes accompanying the exhaustion is grumpiness and/or crying. On that fateful Friday evening the exhaustion took hold of Victoria and wouldn't let her go. She cried and cried and cried saying she didn't want to go, she was too tired. I tried everything. I ended up forcing the dress on her all the while her screaming she didn't want to go, please don't make me go!
Uncle Guy and Emilee were on their way to meet up with Mark and Victoria and I really wanted her to be past the crying before they got there. I was not successful.
These pictures really sum up how that 1.5 hours really went down.
Trying to rip off the corsage instantaneously!
I had to use this one with Uncle Guys eyes closed because Victoria is crying in the rest.
At least somebody is happy!
Aren't they so cute together?
I tried to disctract her by pointing out geese.
Even that didn't work.
Finally, she's happy.
Off they went, all decked out, to McDonald's.
They had a wonderful time dancing and having fun together.
Mark said Victoria said, "Good thing we came here tonight Daddy!
If we would have skipped this it would have been a bad choice."
In the end, it all worked out.
