To Be Young Again

My baby went to Prom for the first time this year. He is only in 10th grade, but he's dating an older woman!! Oh did that bring back memories, except I always dated older guys.
Back to my baby. He is so not like his mom at that age. He's level headed, doesn't drink, smoke and is going on a missions trip to Peru this August. I am really proud of him.
The kids didn't want to spend massive amounts of money going out to eat for Prom so Jeremy's girlfriend's parents hosted a dinner for 15 kids. I went and helped and brought some food to help out. They also did not buy corsages for eachother.
We bought Jeremy a suit instead of renting a tux. He was needing one anyway. His girlfriend bought him his tie to match her dress. (She is now holding the tie hostage, so he doesn't break up with her, I think, but what do I know)

You must be a proud Mom! He sure is dating a pretty girl! These kids sound like they have some sensible heads on their shoulders and really have their priorities straight. Thanks for sharing.

A friend of mine sent me some photos of her son’s elaborate prom dinner party. Trish said that she felt like it was a wedding rehearsal dinner. The party was held at the mansion (yes mansion) of one of his good friends. The stretch hummer limo was waiting to take them to the prom after the fully catered dinner.
Sounds like you and Brain are raising him right. Keep it up!

Oops, that should have been Brian but I am sure he gets called Brain all of the time. LOL!

Wayne and Jackie,
Thanks for the nice comments. Jeremy and C are good kids. Most of the time I feel I can't take credit for this, just got lucky!!
