While at my mom's house last week, I grabbed a couple of things from her closet - one being my old prom dress. With the girls' recent obsession with my closet, I thought that would make a fun gown to try on. So, I brought it home, hung it in the closet and hadn't thought about it since. Well, as soon as Leila got off the bus Friday, the first words out of her mouth were, "Mommy, can I try on your prom dress now?" I wonder if she had been thinking about that all day! Since she had to get ready for soccer, it was a very quick try on - no time to even brush her hair - but I think she looked beautiful. I'm sure this is the first of many times she'll wear this.
Leila just had to take pictures with the blue umbrella, which was still laying out from Mia's play date. We had the dress pinned in the back with hair clips, so when it started to fall, it brought back old memories. Anytime I lifted my arms (as in slow dancing), my prom date had to hold onto my dress or it would just fall to the floor. Thankfully, he did his job very well, or else we would have had a very exciting prom... and a very embarrassing moment for me. ;)
And speaking of embarrassing... I promised you a good laugh.
Prom, Junior Year, 1988
I must be up for some personal humiliation because I have another one coming later this week. Remember I said I grabbed a couple of things from my mom's closet? The other is something Leila is going to wear in her school musical on Wednesday that I wore to a certain event when I was nine. More to follow on that one.
OK, you can stop laughing now. Please.
