Important Lessons in a Young Girl's Life #45

Last week Mary Karlee taught a piano lesson to one of her adult students who brings her 5 year-old son, Carter. At some point during the lesson Marielle brought out her princess dress and the lesson was briefly interrupted to put on the dress. Carter meanwhile, was busy making gun sounds and flying Dad's Superman and Batman action figures around the room. Marielle didn't say a word to Carter the whole time he was here. Immediately after Liz and Carter walked out the door, Marielle said to MK, "He wouldn't dance with me."

MK's response: "Well, did you ask him?"
Dad's response: "Welcome to a life of frustration in which boys disappoint you and don't even know that they're doing it."

I can't protect you from all those clueless boys, but I will always dance with you.

Ryan, as I've already said many times, you are the best of the best of the best of DADS! Marielle looks adorable, who wouldn't want to dance with her??? I'll never understand boys.
