Today was a full, busy day. I started off being woken up by a phone call from my hubby. I needed to go pick my daughter up from her sleepover by 10:00. So I woke up my son and we drove to the city to get her. We then drove back home and had only 30 minutes before we had to leave (back to the city – poor planning on my part!) and drive my son to my mom and dad’s house. They watched him for a couple hours, until my hubby got off work and was able to go pick him up. My daughter and I went from my mom and dad’s to Southgate. There we met up with two of her best friends, as well as their moms (there’s usually a group of 4 of them who are always together. It was just the three of them, because the one girl is away with her dad for the kiiioing weekend. She’s going to be disappointed that she missed the dresses and the shopping!!). We spent the next few hours trying to find the girls grade 9 grad dresses. We went to many stores. Each of the girls were so different, so very different styles of dresses looked good on each of them! I don’t know if they realize that they can wear just about anything and look great!! They’re at an age where they’re very self conscious about what they’re wearing…when they don’t really have to be. I mean as long as it’s not something completely inappropriate, they look good in anything! Anyway, my daughter didn’t really like anything until we went to the Bay. There she tried on a strapless dress, with gold jewel/beading across the chest. It was a sheer, flowy white fabric on the bottom. It was quite pretty. She was concerned that it was too dressy. However, she liked it enough that she had me put it on hold. From there she didn’t like much until Le Chateau (which has completely changed from what I remember!). There she liked a few dresses. The ones she liked, of course, cost more. That’s just my luck! However, the one she liked most was from there. It’s black and white and it did cost more than the bay one, but you could just tell that she was more comfortable in that dress. It’s a very pretty dress. We decided to buy it. It was the last one in her size and they wouldn’t put it on hold for me☹️. So, we choose that one. Despite the price. It’s a very nice dress, nothing needs to be pinned or fixed. It’s very pretty and it suits her. I will post a picture on the day of the grad. When my oldest was younger, they moved to the high school in grade nine, so they had a grade 8 farewell. Now my baby girl is having her grade 9 grad!! I cannot really believe that she’s going to be in the high school next year!! Crazy talk! I’m afraid of doing the whole fall asleep while writing thing that I always do. I am just really tired right now. After we bought the expensive dress, we had to say goodbye and head back into town. Our good friends were having a birthday party at the local pool where we had my son’s party a couple week ago. I was 100%sure that the part began at 4:00. However, my hubby called us at the mall to tell us that the party was starting at 3:00!! We went there as fast as we could, but my daughter and I were an hour late! Thankfully, my hubby had our son and was able to get him there by about 3:10, so he had time to play. I felt really bad for being so late. We had fun and a nice visit, despite being so late!! While there, I told my hubby about the dress and he wasn’t too happy about the price. Both of the ones she liked cost a bit more than we wanted to spend. Her friend’s mom is pretty sure that they have a pair of white shoes that should work. Fingers crossed. By the time we got home and had supper I was done – just exhausted!!! So on that note, I’m going to head to bed to get some rest. My mom and dad are coming here tomorrow and I have to clean up the house!
