I am going to Las Vegas for the weekend for my sister's stagette, or bachelorette party, if you are not from my region. In a way, it is my 'stagette', as it will be my last vacation, sans enfant. Not to say I will never have a childless vacation again, but it will be different, as the child will exist and I might miss it or something. All things to come.
Anyway, I was working on 'something' for the stagette at recess. I can't say what it is, because it is a surprise! My students saw it and were impressed and wanted to know what it was all about. So I explained that my sister is getting married so we are going to Vegas to celebrate. Most of the kids walked away. One girl, who is from a different culture than the typical culture of our city, needed to understand just what this was all about. Who was going? What will we do? My husband wasn't going? So, she came up with the definition: A stagette is a secret party, just for girls, no boys allowed". Yep. Pretty much. She totally wants one!
