A 7-year-old boy from North Carolina came to the rescue of his heartbroken nanny. 17-year-old Rachel had been babysitting Curtis everyday for almost a year prior to the coronavirus outbreak. Between picking up Curtis from school, taking him to piano lessons, and helping him with his homework, Rachel had become a part of the family.
When Curtis heard about Rachel’s prom being canceled, he insisted on throwing a socially distanced “mini-prom” for her in his backyard. It started with a giant “promposal” sign to invite Rachel to the event.
On the day of the mini-prom, Curtis put on his best suit, set out a fancy dinner table in the back yard with all of their favorite foods from Chick-Fil-A; and after raising a glass of juice to toast his babysitter, they danced....six feet apart of course.
“I planned it out because Rachel probably just wanted to see me a lot and she also is one of the best people I’ve known.”
