I have mentioned many times how I have a 15 year old daughter from a previous relationship. Well, today, she is taking her driver's permit test! Pray for me!
She and Mr Fix It have been a part of each other's lives since she was 9 years old. It's kind of crazy...but they love each other and get along great. Too great...in fact, they sometimes annoy me. And since Mr Fix It is truly still a big kid himself, the two of them together usually causes me grief.
That said, we definitely wanted to include Little Miss in our wedding ceremony and our vows.
As you may remember in this post, Mr Fix It made a vow to be a patient and caring step-father to Little Miss. Well, we wanted her to take some responsibility in our newly formed family as well.
Of course, we didn't run through this at the rehearsal and so no one knew what the heck was going on. It's kind of silly and we laughed our way through most of it. Little Miss wasn't sure where to stand or how to walk around me to join us. In addition, as you'll see, she totally held true to herself as me and Mr Fix It did with her little 'unplanned' response. Check it:
I could have killed her! Little twerp. Teenagers are so cocky and annoying...they just can't hold to traditions and rules of any type. Oh well...everyone laughed, and I did, too at the time, but afterwards I told her she was a pain!
Share time: Do you have any children or other family members that you incorporated into your ceremony or vows? Did you have (or do you suspect) that someone in your wedding party may go 'off script' with their role during the ceremony?
