Ok, so the following photos are of my oldest daughter. This was her prom 2 yrs ago. Prom in MN is in April, and it’s still stinkin’ cold in April. These girls were freezing to say the least!
My next daughter “should” be going to prom this year, but isn’t interested. So, here’s what she did to me.
Smoochie called me over the weekend and told me something to this effect:
Hi, I know you called me a while ago and wanted to know about prom. “K’s” boyfriend’s brother asked me to go and I said, “yes.” His mom has already bought the prom dress and it’s pink, but I love it. So, yah, I just wanted to let you know.
I get this message at work, while on my 10 minute break. I wanted to scream in excitement. I called her immediately and squealed as quietly as possible. She told me to hang on a second. What? Contain my excitement?
She came back to the phone and I told her how excited I was over and over. Then she says to me,
I was joking.
I was like, “What?” paused soaking this information in. “For real?”
I could NOT believe she had totally bamboozled me! Of course when she said she liked the pink dress, that should’ve been my first tip off that she was lying. But I’m a mom who hopes. I hope she will not miss her one and only prom. I could care less if she wore a neon dress with flickering lights on it. I think she’s going to regret it when she’s older. I had only grabbed on to that thin thread of hope that she had changed her mind.
I guess I was wrong.
I have to admit, I laughed my butt off after it sank in that she still wasn’t going. That was the first time she’s ever pulled a prank on me and she did it stupendously. My hat is off to my daughter.
So, in honor of my daughter NOT going to prom, I thought I’d show you photos of my Baby at her prom.
