Deep down I think we all love a Royal Wedding. I remember watching with wide eyes and anticipation as Charles and Diana were married. Diana's pouffy dress with the longest train that I had ever seen. Prince Charming waiting at the end of the aisle waiting to sweep her from her life as a preschool teacher into a Royal Fairytale of ever after. We couldn't get enough pictures of them and how we longed for them to be the happily ever after that we all wanted them to be. We all know how that story ended.
To celebrate the Royal Wedding of Kate and William Nate and Paige's school is celebrating the nuptials by dressing up and wearing suits and fascinators. We went out last night and found Nathan a suit and I made Paige a fascinator to wear with her fancy shmancy dress got at Frenchy's. Nathan and I hit the suit rack at our favorite French boutique at supper time and found him a suit and a shirt and tie. We stopped at the dollarama and found all of the fixings to make Paige her hat. Nathan rarely likes to dress up but the thought that he wanted to wear a suit and celebrate the royal nuptials in this way encouraged no hesitation on my part to open the pocketbook to invest thirty dollars on wedding attire for a 10 year old. I may have to wait til his wedding for him to wear another one. Paige always wants to wear fancy dresses and mostly she wants to wear them places and at times that are not appropriate but after four children and realizing that the clothes they wear and where they wear it is not an issue of eternity I tend to just let it ride.
