with these kids today!
This afternoon I took the Girl shopping for her graduation dress. Yes, the child is graduating from middle school (Baruch HaShem) and all the girls have already gotten their new dresses, so she's been begging to go shopping for a while now. Me, I can't believe that anyone would want to buy a dress for middle school graduation. It sure was different when I was growing up, that's for sure!
She has a dress type in mind, one with a nice light floral pattern, a halter top, and a knee length handkerchief skirt. Why she's decided this is what she wants is a mystery, but we sure couldn't find anything that fit the description and also fit the Girl. We did see two dresses she liked, but they just were too teeny to believe. They were marked Size 3, but I think it might have been a negative 3. There is no way she could wear these dresses and she was sad. So very sad.
Graduation is more than a month away and she's panicking. I have no intention of paying full price for a dress she'll likely wear only once or twice. We'll probably have to go downtown to (gulp) Filenes Basement for a gander at what they have.
I just realized that I have to dress up for this soiree as well. Great. I might just start crying now. Stumble It! JBlog Me
