I’m sure everyone who knows me personally is tired of hearing me talk about my baby going to the prom.
But guys…look at my baby. All dressed up in a tuxedo and heading to the PROM!
(My son just told me that his friends think it looks like a photo that comes with the frame. Can’t stop laughing…)
My son’s girlfriend’s dress is short. But the consensus among my 40+ year old friends is that if we still had the bodies we had 25 years ago we would wear that dress. Truth be told if I could have my 18 yr old body back I would just walk around naked. And admire my ass in a three way mirror. I now have an appreciation of what 25 years of gravity, not to mention childbirth, does to a body.
I discovered that I do not know how to attach a boutineer with that fancy straight pin. I felt so inept and unable to pass down important female knowledge to the next generation. I have a year to learn. And thirteen more proms in the future with which to master this so watch out world!
The best photos I have of them is when they are laughing.
The photos that they probably don’t really like as much as the posed ones.
What no one tells you when your child has a long term girlfriend is that you grow to like then, to be attached to them in your own way. If they break up I would be upset because I really do adore her.
