Here Comes the . . . Flower Girl


The wedding came and went this past Saturday. It was an exciting but long and exhausting day that began when we left the house at 9:30 am. We learned the night before that we were expected to be dressed for pictures at the church by 11 am. But, Scamp's hair appointment was at 11 am. Thank goodness her Aunt Sha Sha (Shan) was doing her hair. We called her Saturday morning to ask if we could come an hour early.

We booked it to the church after Scamp's hair was sufficiently fluffed and made it by 11:45, but the bridesmaid's weren't ready yet. So, we were right on time. Scamp did fairly well with pictures, especially sitting still. And fifteen minutes before the 2:00 pm ceremony I sneaked out of the nursery where Scamp and the other girls were waiting. I had saved myself a seat in the third row from the front near the center aisle so that I would be visible to Scamp and help with any "complications."

Finally, Scamp and the bridesmaids arrived to the rear of the church. I could see her wide, mischieveous grin spreading. She was so excited. One by one the bridesmaids came forward. Then, it was time for Scamp's big entrance. Smiling with her tongue sticking out, she caught sight of me and ran, forgetting to drop her petals along the way. I grasped her, gave her a big hug and sent her to the front with the others. She wasn't quite sure what to do and started making a few circles on stage and finally ran back to me. I could sense she might steal the show from the bride if she was left to her own devices.

Singing "Jesus Loves Me" into the mic before the wedding. I think Scamp would have tried to serenade the crowd during the vows.

I quickly handed her a bad of emergency cookies and toted her to the back row where her Daddy was nicely hidden. Feat accomplished although she didn't exit with the other wedding party. Everyone got a good laugh out of her speedy entrance, and the ceremony went peacefully with the bride being the center of attention.


Reception. Scamp was starved.
