The unthinkable has happened. Okay...maybe it's not so unthinkable.
My good friend's daughter will be competing against my daughter at next week's competition. So far, things are going well in preparation. My friend's daughter admitted to being a little apprehensive about competing against a friend. My own daughter is just excited to wear her freeskate dress with the giant tutu skirt. That part will all be fine.
However, my friend has been known to breathe fire at other Momzillae in competitive situations. I'm hoping this will be different.
Just in case, I admit to having fleeting thoughts of buying protective gear for my daughter's kneecaps, and possibly a flame-resistant garment or two for myself.
I'm just kidding, really. I know that it will go great.
But maybe I'll stick a fire extinguisher in the car, just to be on the safe side...
