7-year-old throws mini-prom for babysitter
Leave it to a devoted 7-year-old to show his babysitter she is the best ever.
Curtis Rodgers was feeling bad for Rachel Chapman when his mom explained she wouldn’t be able to have a high school prom because of the coronavirus lockdown situation.
Brilliant Curtis to the rescue. He told his mom they could throw Rachel a prom in their backyard in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Curtis told ABC News in Raleigh, NC that Rachel deserved the special mini-prom because, “She is one of the best people I’ve known.”
Rachel told the news station, “I was kind of like bummed putting my dress on because I was sad; I don’t get to wear it to my senior prom.”
“After leaving it and having that time with him because it was the first time I had seen him in two months, it was like, really fun, and I’m really glad that he did that.”
