Saturday, I am taking my 14 yo daughter shopping for a dress for the 8th grade formal. My daughter has expensive tastes and no concept of where money comes from. She also has a bad attitude when she doesn't get her way. Typical teenage girl. We have been looking online at dresses and she really wants one of those that is really puffy at the bottom (tulle). They are, of course, the most expensive ones. I asked my mother to go with us so my daughter behaves better. The formal is in two weeks so we have to find a dress tomorrow. We also have to find shoes and all the other accessories. Then, of course, she said she has to get her hair done and her nails... where does it all end?
Her brother went to the formal years ago but he was much cheaper. I think the tux was $99. I should have had two boys! But then again they are not as much fun to dress up as girls.
