Next problem? A costume, Mom and Dad approved that was still "cool" enough to be seen in. Not an easy task, let me tell you. Kayla insisted that she DID NOT want to be any kind of princess, fairy, angel, etc..etc...etc... She wanted something a little edgy. EDGY?!!! What is that suppose to mean?! I guess a clown is out of the question!
So I set out to find the perfect "EDGY," dad approved costume. Do you know that if you google "teen costumes" you find outfits that are way beyond a little edgy..."embarrassing" is a better word. Is a teenager allowed to be modest anymore? We live in a sad, sad world.
I finally found at Kmart, a costume that I thought all would approve of. A Pirate. It wasn't cut too low, wasn't too short and it fit the edgy requirement. When I got the dagger it had a BIG skull on it, which I wasn't happy over, but as Kayla said, "MOM, IT IS A PIRATE COSTUME!!!"
So last night after I got off work, we went to work on getting her ready for the big dance. She turned out cute. I haven't heard how everything went, for she went home with a friend afterwards. But I do know that she was so excited when she left last night. Oh, they grow up too fast!
