DD Got Married!

Today we celebrated Family Day at DD's kindergarten - Israel's more sensitive and politically correct answer to Mothers' and Fathers' Days. All the girls were asked to come in white dresses as they would be dressing up as the brides, while the boys, in their white shirts, were the grooms.

They started off by filing in like a Chinese mass wedding. The couples walked under a large wedding canopy held up by four of the fathers and that was the ceremony over with. Then there was dancing of course. DD had a bit of trouble with her tiara but her betrothed - a real mensch - helped her fix it back in place. A better son-in-law I couldn't wish for. Having said that, I didn't think this would happen quite so soon.



Afterwards there was a slap up wedding breakfast that did us all proud. And finally, all the brides and grooms went home with their own Mummies and Daddies. The perfect wedding(s) wouldn't you say?



One sign of the times that always makes me laugh is how the parents no longer sit and and watch a performance of any sort. As soon as the music starts they all turn into paparazzi, jump up and view the whole thing through their tech devices - LOL.

    1. She seems to have formed an attachment to him even when they are not dancing.

  3. What a performance, absolutely fabulous :) It reminds me of a photo I have of my DS and his 'girl' friend at the time, they were both dressed up and it looked exactly like a 'just married' pic :)

    1. They're so funny with their girl/boyfriends at age 4/5. All the fun and none of the heartache. (Well maybe not ALL the fun ;P.)

    1. We have the same sense of humour Natasha - those were my highlights apart from DD doing the twist of course.
