Is anyone else like this? I have this huge, ever lengthening mental list of things I want to post about, but I never find time to do anything about it! Life is too busy ;) Since I often blog for the sole purpose of getting things off my chest, I am gonna do that today. Let me start off by saying I WILL NEVER COMPLAIN THAT MY CHILD IS TOO PREPPY OR GIRLY EVERY AGAIN! I don't care how much I spend on her clothing, hair and makeup through the year...I will get a second job if I have to, just so she doesn't turn out to be a Gothic mess like so many other teens are today. Since starting at the library, I have been in charge of the Anime book club and every week is a true adventure. I love each and every one of these teens and accept them for who they are, but oh my.....! Their hair is long and stringy, they are pierced, tattooed, wearers of all black. Their lingo is foreign to me and they have the strangest mannerisms. Come on, y'all...I am seriously not old enough to experience this much of a culture shock. I told my husband last night that they behave like wild animals...and they do. Working with this group has been an eye opener in one respect. Previously, I will admit some prejudice to the Gothic crowd; I tended to put a great deal of blame on the parents and while I still believe that holds true somewhat, most of these teens come from good families. Wow!
So, as I said before, I am thrilled that I have a little prep in the makings...lol. She loves nothing more than to hit up the Gap, Macy's or Belk and is most happy when wearing a dress, lots of pink and perfect accessories. Babygirl has long, sandy blonde hair (currently down to her waist) and has big blue eyes. I foresee an expensive future, but that's a-okay by me.
