This "China Mom" and her daughter celebrated their 5th Gotcha Day.
Mom (Dr. D) is a highly respected department chair and professor at a prestigious private college.
We were invited to join them.
Other folks there, too.
I only knew one of the families.
MiMi, the daughter, is having another surgery on her ear (reconstructive - outer ear).
She was born, I think, totally deaf...but has a BAHA device that allows her to hear sounds.
So...they decided to have a skating party on a school night.
MiMi won't be able to do this for a long while after this next surgery on May 25.
I drove 45 mins to the wrong skating rink.
And I was almost out of gas.
**I know, Mother. Fill it up at 1/2 a tank.**
We finally made it.
The girls skated and had fun.
Mary had been SO excited about the event...all day long.
We know these folks.
Disco lights were on
