On Friday night we went to the football game. My neighbor, who has triplet girls in second grade, joined us. She is in that space of life where she is far removed from highschoolers. She certainly isn’t one, and she’s far away from having one. She looked around and said, “Where are all the awkward kids?” I agree with her, kids are just better looking these days. Maybe it’s all the social media showing them how to pose, do make up, what to wear, and such. Maybe it’s the affordable and accessible eye brow threading. I dunno. What I can say is I was a very aesthetics conscious teenager. I tried. But I NEVER looked like these girls! And for the record, neither did ANYONE in my high school!
To all my former classmates,
I MADE THAT! Yes, it’s confusing. I don’t know how. I was awkward AND bad at science, okay? But I know I grew these girls in my womb and so BAM! Take that bitches!
Still Kinda Awkward and Not Very Mature
Let’s talk about this girl though.
I mean. What even the heck. She looked beautiful. My sweet Lexi Lou who turned down a date because he didn’t put enough effort forth. “I didn’t want a date anyway, but if he had at least made a poster I would have felt bad and said yes. But please, he didn’t even try.” You go girl. Make ‘em work for you.
I love her friends. All such sweet, smart, good girls. They all looked so pretty.
Mark and I had to divide and conquer. Lexi’s group went out to dinner, so Mark went with them and the other parents. I went with Adrienne’s group to do dinner and pics with them. It should come as no surprise when I tell you my husband took not one picture the whole evening. I can’t even.
Adrienne’s group was not surprisingly beautiful as well. They took a different look than the sweet freshman. I think they were going for a more
trampy sophisticated feel.
Adrienne went with a date, and can I say he’s a fine looking young man?
Here’s the important part. He’s a nice young man. He’s a gentleman. And he didn’t get that way by accident. His parents did that work! They didn’t leave anything to chance. His mom talked to him about the proper way to take care of my girl. What a concept!!
Another cool thing kids do these days…
They pick a location to meet and take pictures with their class. These are all seniors.
So that’s a wrap for my senior. I’m really nothing but excited for every adventure her future holds, but also thankful for the memories she’s making now.
