My baby boy (all 16 yo, 6'4" of him!) will be attending his first prom, wearing his first tuxedo, riding in his first limousine... what a bunch of firsts!
But first - we went shopping to rent the proper raiment. All the way to the store, he and his buddy were planning extravagant, lavish, totally inappropriate mixes of color and substance! :)
One theme kept repeating:
Son: "I want to wear bowling shoes"
Me (and buddy's mom): "Um.... no!"
Upon entering the store, son sees the shoe display and points - "That's what I want to wear!"
The shoes on the left are the 'bowling' shoes he meant... and he'll be wearing them.
Totally a better choice than the bright green sport shoes with pink Power Puff Girls shoe laces he wore to homecoming one year.
