Wedding Fever

Tuesday, September 15, 2009

Katie has been obsessed with weddings for the last few months. It all started when I told her that I would be going away for a few days to my cousin's wedding in Vegas. She wasn't upset that I was going away, but that I was going to a wedding and she couldn't go. Three weeks later Chris and I went to another wedding while she had to stay home. Since then, she has been eyeing the Wedding Day Barbie at every shopping opportunity. She has been making random comments during car rides. We'll just be driving and out of the blue I'll hear, "I sure wish I could go to a wedding, I LOVE weddings!" To be honest, I don't even know what her basis is. I watch many of her cartoons with her, unfortunately, and I don't remember seeing any wedding episodes. Recently we found out another friend will be getting married this fall and Katie brazenly asked her if she could come to the wedding. Of course, she told her yes, but the reality is that they are going to be having a smaller wedding than originally planned and it's more likely than not that she will not be invited.

So today as we were driving to dance class she shocked me with all of her wedding knowledge.

Katie: Mom, do weddings have cakes?
Me: Yes, they do actually.
Katie: Yea, I know that. ALL weddings have cakes. And they have flower girls and tuxedos.
Me: Wow, how do you know all of that Katie? Did you learn it from a tv show?
Katie: No, I just know it, mom. I know everything about it.
Me: Really? That's very impressive. I can't believe you know about tuxedos. Where did you learn about that big word?
Katie: I just know it. I know the tuxedos have to carry the pillow very, very carefully so they don't drop the ring.

Thank goodness I was stopped at a traffic light when she imparted that bit of knowledge; I was laughing so hard!

Imagine how much more excited she would be to attend a wedding if she knew what might happen after the cake is cut.

So, if anyone needs a flower girl, please let me know. I'm sure Katie would be more than willing. She is full of wedding knowledge, loves dress up (as long as the dress doesn't itch), and takes a pretty picture.

Maybe she can be my assistant when I help out at the next wedding for my friend's event company!

HA! I love Katie's knowledge of tuxedos and ring-carrying! My daughter informed me yesterday that supper is what daddies make for breakfast when mommies are still in bed....?? :o)
