So this is it......Grade 8 Grad. 09......will I survive??
I don't know if I have told you before, but this is for me the absolute WORST day of the year!! For any Mom's of Grade 8 graduates this year, head this little piece of advice......your little girl does not want to look 12 today....she actually wants to look 21....and yes me...your wonderful hairstylist... has to deal with, and attempt to make both of you happy!!!
I get that you are footing the bill......but I also get that if I ruin this poor girls day because she looks more like she should be getting baptised than graduating...it will be me that has left a pretty big scar on her teenage years! I for one do NOT want to be responsible for this!!
Seriously there will be no baby's breathe.......there will be no bows or fu fu puffy sleeves.....she does want to wear makeup maybe even a smoky eye....I am a smart person I have been doing this for years.....I will not ever, ever make her look like a trashy 20 year old hooker....this is why you come to me remember......I don't do that to you, so I won't do that to your little girl!
So back off.....I don't need you sitting right beside me watching my every curl and asking me will this stay....honey do you want that higher...do you like it sweetie.....are you sure you want it straight...wouldn't you rather wear it up.....UGHGHGHGHGHGH seriously.....you daughter thinks I am cool we have this figured out...we have chatted, looked at pictures.....I have told her over and over again that she isn't going to hurt my feelings if she tells me she doesn't like it...we will try something else...that is why you came last week for a trial....that was you time to shine with all of your questions...NOT today!!!
Today you sit up front remaining calm....go pick up the corsage.....go buy a pretty grad present and leave the hair up to me......and when we walk out from behind that wall you should smile your best smile and say....."honey you look so great.....it is beautiful"......and for goodness sake DO NOT say she looks cute.......that is the worst........please more for your sake than mine....if you want to have a nice pleasant time with your over-emotional, hormonal teenage daughter, do not say she looks CUTE!!
So now you know what I am doing today.....working....on a Monday....dealing with Mom's of Grade 8 Grads!!!
Happy Monday Everyone!!
