YesterDay amy BaBBy Sat for me and We Watched Happy Days
I think you might have a thing for this mysterious Amy, young me. And I’m glad to see that there’s another mention of your fascination with the Fonz.
I tried to figure out what episode of Happy Days this was so I could watch it to recreate this adventure in babysitting. It was definitely a rerun, since the show wrapped up its sixth season in May. I found that week’s issue of TV Guide, but couldn’t find a scan of the listing pages, only this profile of Battlestar Galactica's Starbuck, Dirk Benedict.
For your reading pleasure, it is presented in its entirety below.

Today is my mom and DaD Annaversarey and I gave them Paper weights.
The only thing lamer than this drawing is this anniversary gift, because I’m pretty sure those were just rocks that I painted to say “mom” and “DaD.”
(I was big on rock-related gifting in second grade.)
Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad! (It’s their 45th!)

Tonight is the fasoin Show.
Me: Hi mom. Did they have a fashion show at school when I was a kid?
Mom: Yep.
Me: What was that all about?
Mom: Everybody partook. You know, it was mostly the girls who made stuff in Home Ec or whatever. I don’t think you took Home Ec.
Me: I took wood shop.
Mom: So it was a fashion show put on by the students at the school. And that was that.
Me: And the kids made clothes for adults?
Mom: No, for themselves. 
Me: And what, they modeled them? There’s a picture of a person in a dress on what could be a catwalk.
Mom: Mm-hmm. Yep. Yeah, so it was probably once you got up to the fifth grade. What year was it? ‘79? So you would have been eight years old. So it was probably the older kids. Because I don’t think they let kids take Home Ec until later, because of sewing machines and stuff.
Me: So everyone went to the fashion show?
Mom: Well, look, the school was so small then. I think that the majority of the people went, maybe not the younger grades. But you would have been in what, third grade?
Me: Second grade.
Mom: Oh, that’s when you did The Happening Book. And you probably saw the fashion show in school first, and then they did it at nighttime for the adults. 
Me: Wow. They did two performances? What else went on there?
Mom: They might have had refreshments afterwards, but that’s all. 
Me: OK. 
Mom: My god, I can’t believe you’re doing this book thing. I mean, it’s so amazing that you have all this information in this book that you did in second grade.
Me: I think it would only be amazing if it had a feature-length review of the show, written in kicky prose.
Mom: Oh, don’t be silly.

Last night it thundered and Lightning. 
Boom!
Henceforth, in the event of foul weather, I’m going to tell people that “last night it thundered and lightning.” And if they call me on it, I’m going to say “no no no no no… I said, ‘last night it thundered; enlightening.’”
