Bord, I am still very proud that dd made her own prom dress for about 5 bucks. A year later she had to go to her boy's prom at a fancy private school in London, she made a dress for that too. I had offered to buy her something for both events, but she thought it was silly to spend money on a one-shot deal like that.

250 for a dress, hunh?  Yikes indeed.  I had to buy a formal dress iover the holidays, and I tried one on that cost $200 but I refused to buy it even though I loved it....then I saw it last month, a size smaller, on clearance at 60% off.  So I bought it.  I still need to lose between 5-10 pounds before it looks really good (or invest in some killer shapewear)....but I don't need to wear it now until May....and hopefully, over the holidays, because ain't no way I am spending even a hundred bucks on a dress I can only wear once.....<br /><br />We bought our former foster daughter a prom dress....she "needs" two-three a year.   Luckily she found one she liked for just over a hundred bucks.<br /><br />I am kind of glad I got boys.</p>

Yes, but we are only paying $100 and the alterations (it fits like it was made for her, all it needs is hemmed); she's paying the rest.   We figure she'll end up wearing it again sometime, or we'll give it to another girl who will.

1. What was the last thing you did for your kid?
Woke her up isnce her alarm didn't go off this morning.

2. What things do you like doing with your kids?
Life is a lot different now than when they were little.  We still have dinner together most nights, which is a mostly pleasant experience.  We play a lot of games, watch movies, the girl likes to shop, I enjoy my time with her, even if I don't really enjoy the shopping part.

3. What memories stand out about your own mom... Good or bad?
I don't really want a debate about my childhood, so I am not going to answer this one as it's kind of personal.

4. How many kids do you have? Is it a # you planned for/wanted?
3 - They were all planned.

5. Do you have a pet(s)?
Do fish count?

1.  What was the last thing you did for your kid?

DD2 had surgery last Friday and is staying at our house while she recovers.  She hoped to go back to work today but is still on potent pain relief so cannot drive/teach. On Sat DH and I took her to her school so she could do her sub notes for the week.  We fetched things off the printer for her and I was queen of the paper cutter.

>2.  What things do you like doing with your kids?

Play words with friends, watch movies/TV, play Wii, play board games.

3.  What memories stand out about your own mom...  Good or bad?

My memories of my mom are all pretty much good. Surprisingly those memories are often brought back via music/movies.  I love to listen to Andy Williams at Christmas time becuase I rememeber watching to Andy Williams Christmas specials with her.  I loved the movie Frost/Nixon because it reminded me of her because I remember how much she was into the story when it happened.  I loved the movie, Julie/Julia because I remember watching Julie Child with her when I was a child. 

4.  How many kids do you have?  Is it a # you planned for/wanted?

3, just  as planned.

5.  Do you have a pet(s)?

No, our beloved dog Red died last year.  We had made the decision before hand that he would be our last pet.

I love your cat's name Lauren, and he's terribly cute! We name our pets to cities we live in - Our dog was a rescue from Houston and named accordingly.

Thanks for sharing your mom story bord, I can relate a little to that versatile kind of company.  Both my parents were very accepting of others.

I think that's cool your DD makes her own clothes and made her prom dress mops. DD1 had her first semi-formal in January, We found a pretty kee topper dress on clearance for about 30.00, It was just right and not too fancy. I'm not ready for the ridiculous costs of prom dresses and some of them are down right gawdy, Blech.

Yeah my youngest wants to start walking every night once it gets nicer out. Oh I just say that because I remember telling her to go to work as my other friends mom's went to work and they were able to come home by themselves. lol. She was always there.
