Holy Smokes, girls are WAY different than boys when it comes to prom! Jeremy ordered his tux last week and I am supposed to order the flowers for his date (he is not a flower guy).....done deal.
Now, Courtney and prom are a TOTALLY different story. I bought her a dress a few weeks ago. Since then, she has had to make a nail appointment (hello, we never cared about our finger nails in high school), and has made a hair appointment (we never did this either but ok, I can see the point on this one). Yesterday I took her to town to finish up buying things. She needed a garter (I don't remember doing this either), jewelry (this one I actually did for prom), ordered shoes (I just wore some heels that I already had), hair jewelry (I never would have spent money on this in HS) and make-up just for the day (what's wrong with the make-up she wears every day?).
The difference between Courtney and me.....she is high maintenance.....I am very low to no maintenance! Ok, you are all thinking, she is a young hip teenager and I am an old un-hip mom.....you are right!
My experience.....boys are way easier and CHEAPER when it comes to prom.
