8 thoughts on “8th grade dance

  1. Limos?!?!?! For an 8th grade dance? Even a restaurant seems excessive. Maybe I’m remembering too much of my 8th grade dance *shudder*. Course, disco was huge then…

  2. I’m with Barry (for a change LOL). Limousines, formals, dates and restaurants… for an 8th grade dance? What the heck with Senior Prom be like?

    Age appropriateness (particularly, obviously in clothing) is not a negotiation process. It is what you say is OK (Based on past experience, I will leave Doug out of this part of the decision making process), or else “don’t go.”

    I am sure these words will come back to bite me, when my daughter is older, but I don’t understand why kids (in general, I am not talking about you and Doug here) seem to have “control” of so many parents who then whine about what their kid wears.

    If I say it is OK, great. If not… too damn bad. “My house, my rules” kind of thing.

  3. Isn’t it crazy how things are these days?! A nice dress (NOT formal), a ride from mom or dad (not a limo!) is enough. Ok, I would probably let her gets her nails done, but that is fairly inexpensive for a special occasion.

    It just amazes me the lengths some parents will go to spoil their children.

    And I guess you can call me Judgey McJudgeypants, now. 🙂

  4. We didn’t have a limo until senior prom. And we shared it with other couples (I’m married to the girl I took to prom, so I was a little bit serious about showing her a good time)

    hair or nails? I’d consider.

    Eighth grade? Wow.

  5. When I was in 8th grade that was smack dab in the middle of junior high. Our dances were during school hours and we bought tickets to go for $3. We wore dresses off the rack at Kmart and didn’t even dream of dinner or limos until our senior year.
