Surprisingly, she got invited by the 7-Year-Old, who had beautifully organized a mini prom party at their backyard. ‘I was startled. I had no idea he was going to go all out for me, this is very thoughtful and sweet of him.’ Rachel reportedly said.
The babysitter has been watching over Curtis for over a year and her main duty has been to pick him up from school, ferry him to piano lessons, talking him to the playground, and helping him with his homework. ‘Rachel has become part of our family. She’s a great person with a good heart, hence it’s been a blessing to have her help us with Curtis.’ Elissa Rogers, Curtis’s mom said.
Nevertheless, Curtis started out the whole surprise plan with a promposal. He colored a sign inviting her to an at-home prom party. Expectedly, Rachel turned up in a lilac dress and with all smiling faces, Curtis escorted her in a beautiful blue checked suit He even went on to pick a bow tie that matches her Rachel’s dress.
