My Daughter’s Prom Night

heather-thumbnail You may recall my recent post where I talked about my daughter’s upcoming prom, and the various prom safety tips that I believe are extremely important for parents to discuss with their graduating seniors. Well my daughter’s prom came and went already, and I’m happy to say that all went well, and she arrived home exhausted from a wonderful night of dancing with her senior classmates. Wasn’t she an adorable looking baby? She’s all grown up now and about to head off to college. I feel so old now. 😉

One thing that didn’t turn out so well was how my daughter’s prom date flaked out at the last minute, but my daughter took it in stride and still had a great time at her prom. This l.o.s.e.r. was of the opinion that he was “doing her a favor” by going to the prom with my daughter, and that she was expected to buy him “a new set of earrings” as a way of paying him back. Oh really?! My response to that had an R-rating for sure, so I’ll not repeat here what I said about that, but his ears are probably still ringing from the tongue lashing he got.

She’s my baby girl and she’ll always be my baby girl until she turns 82 years old. Throughout prom night, she kept text messaging me to tell me she was dancing to “old school music” such as my many Motown favorites, and she ended up with sore feet as proof that “old school” music can still rock the dance floor. Wait a minute, did she just call me old? 🙂

Once she graduates, she’ll be going off to college to become a famous Music Producer. I get to be the first to say, “I knew you when”! She’s got a lot of musical talent, and plays a few different instruments, and makes up her own “beats” that inevitably cause your foot to start tapping. Yes of course I take full credit for her musical talents. 😉

All in all, she had a wonderful and safe senior prom, and I’m so proud of her and her many accomplishments. Here she is standing in front of the party room at Southfork Ranch (where the OLD television show “Dallas” was filmed).

Baby Girl’s Senior Prom went off without a hitch. She’s actually glad she went to prom by herself and met up with other friends, ’cause she had a blast and she’ll never forget the fun she had on prom night. It was difficult at first to come up any graduation gift ideas on my own, but she’s been reminding me (over and over) about the various graduation gifts she’s got on her graduation wish-list. I think she definitely deserves something nice, don’t you?
