My son Nick and his good buddy Ethan stopped by to get my big black car for prom. Both were a little less than thrilled to be paying for expensive dinners tonight and thought the girls might be using them 'just for show,' but I think they'll end up having a good time.

My daughter had to work at Prom this year (student council) so one less time I have to pay for an expensive, single-use dress!
Thankfully my son broke up with his girlfriend and didn't have to go! :^)

Aren't you sweet, cc. Thank you. :)

Here's something funny, oldman...

I asked Nick how it all went and here's what he said:

"Dinner was expensive. I mean it was good. But, it was really expensive."

All the while he was shaking his head and seems to have a new appreciation for the relationship between work and where the money goes.

I think you should have your daughters pay for their own dresses. :)

Nick bought his clothes and everything else. I did let him use my car and not have to refill the fuel tank, though.

Syd: That is funny; amazing how often you have to remind them the costs of Life. You are tougher than me (in more ways than one!). I always give in to my daughters. My son would have had to pay his own way like yours. But he was too lazy to bother and it is His senior year!
