My 13-year-old went to her grade school prom today. It's a sweet moment as I get a glimpse of her turning into a true teenager. Her dress was white and lacy and had tones of silver and glitter all over. Her aunt came over to do her hair and makeup, better than a salon. I watched at the sidelines (makeup and hair just isn't my thing) as my daughter popped grapes into her mouth while her hair was straightened. We laughed at silly gossip about the Kardashians and episodes of Botched! My husband walked in, said hi, and walked out as the discussion headed towards "women's" issues. My 13-year-old will one day be a woman. Her aunt and I caught a glimpse of this bittersweet fact.
So, today I celebrate my daughter and her grade school prom.
