She danced the night away......and went bowling?

My daughters are amazing.
My daughters are alot like me. ha ha.

They also, are nothing like me.

We spent a good 2 hours getting my oldest daughter ready for the dance last Friday. I say we, but it was all me. We started with her hair. I got out my trusty hair rollers from the top shelf of the closet and she about freaked when she saw them.

her: "What the heck are those?"
me: "they look old but they'll give your hair great curls."
her: "OMGness Mom this isn't the 80's!"

After about 3 more freakouts about my ability to do her hair we finally finished and she loved it.

If my husband wasn't convinced someone was going to see a picture on here and want to come attack us, I'd have some great pictures to show.

I know.

Her makeup didn't take as long, but somewhere around eye shadow, I asked what the final plan for the evening was.
She said they were all meeting at 5 and then going bowling.

Bowling?

How had I missed that plan?

This was Homecoming. Pictures, a nice dinner somewhere fancy, and off to the dance........

Apparently I'm from the 80"s.

She was so excited. Fancy dresses and bowling shoes. What could be more fun?

This is something I would have never done. It just doesn't make sense. We I had just spent 2 hours doing her hair!

After I stopped freaking out, I started laughing.
This was so my daughter.
And her pictures she captured from the whole night?
Priceless!
Who knew, fancy dresses and bowling shoes went so well together.

Fancy dresses and bowling shoes. I love it!!! *grin*
Hey, I was in my brother's wedding and the entire wedding party went to a college football game between the wedding and the reception - in our fancy dresses and tuxes! That marriage ended in a divorce, but that is entirely beside the point. *sigh*

Anyway, good for you to be flexible. (From one 80s mom to another.)

I want to see the pictures! I can't believe she is old enough to go to Homecoming...tell that neice of mine to stop growing up!

I wish I could have been there to see you do her hair. I have been straightening Madie's hair every morning because she is still too scared that she will burn herself! I love that time with her.

I bet she had fun bowling in her dress. That will be a great memory for her!
Love you!

I say that sounds like a fun, safe night! I love it. I bet she was head turning at that bowling alley.

That's cute. I'd be THRILLED if my daughter chose bowling over the fancy dinner and more "traditional" activities. Sometimes traditional can be scary!
