I'm still trying to figure out how to get off my holiday weight, while Valentine's candy and Lindt truffles torment me at every turn. I'm a one-season-at-a-time type of gal, (or more likely, just a procrastinator). I'll forget about cooking a corned beef until the day before St. Paddy's, and color Easter eggs just as Peter Cottontail is about to hop his furry butt my way.
One day last week my ability to procrastinate was swiftly put to a halt.
Me to Daughter: You got any plans today?
Daughter: Yeah. I'm going to look at prom gowns with my friends.
Me: What? When is prom?
Daughter: The end of April. People are already buying them. Last year I waited to long, remember how hard it was to find a dress?
I'm blaming her date for that one - he waited to the last minute to ask her and then we had to scurry to find a dress.
I think it's all a little out of control. It's January for pete's sake. High School girls have taken prom preparations to a whole new level - Miss America contestants are not even putting half the effort into preparing for the pageant.
We've got the date on the calendar to go looking at gowns and I've been the assigned make up artist for her and her friends on the big day.
If you are a Mother of teens, please tell me if it is like this everywhere, or just my town? It seems like, "prom season," starts earlier and earlier every year.
