Prom Mom

Last weekend, Eric went to his first Prom. His "date" was a very nice young lady named Taylor - a friend of a friend. She invited Eric (through his buddy Mark who was going to the dance with her best friend) and I think they had a great time. Since the dance was for a different high school than his own, Eric met lots of new people.

Do you remember your first Prom? I do - for most girls I think it's a magical moment. As a "boy mom", there wasn't quite the same attention to things such as hair ("yes mom, I washed it...) and clothes (he wore Dad's tux) as you girl moms go through. But it was still a very special evening. Taylor's parents hosted dinner for the prom-goers and their parents at their home, so it was great to be able to meet Taylor and her parents prior to the dance. It also gave me an opportunity to witness Eric's social skills firsthand and made me proud of my son.

Here's a photo of the gang, all dressed up and ready to go. (Eric is the second from the right) If you'd like to see all of the photos, they're here.

How wonderful. I can't imagine my little boys growing up and going to a prom. May just send them straight to the seminary - LOL.

Zina,
Thanks for your comment - sometimes I feel that way too, but I'm so proud of the young men they are becoming! You will be too!
