My 14 Year Old Daughter Has Been Asked on Her First Date!!!

Oh my! Where did the time go? I can't believe we are already at this point in our lives! It doesn't feel like that long ago that she was just a baby, now she is wanting to date! AAHHHH! I wasn't allowed to date when I was her age, so my gut is to say "No way Missy!" But the reality is I am probably just as excited for her. Would it be totally uncool of me to take a picture of her and her "boyfriend" on their first date? Please tell me it won't be, because I so want to take a picture! So it looks like I am going to get to meet this young man this weekend, but my poor daughter, I told her she could go, but that I am going with her and I will be in the same movie theatre as her and she can feel free to sit anywhere in front of me in the theatre. I also enlisted a friend to go with me, because what fun is it totally embarrassing your daughter on her first date if someone isn't there to witness it? Right? Actually I thought it would be worse if I brought dad and her sisters with, so I am trying to be nice by not bringing the whole family on her date.

Well since I am feeling a need to be cool - I think a cool manicure is in order. I did this one just to see how the color looks alone and layered over another polish. I actually fell in love with this manicure as it is though. Is it date night worthy? :)

This is China Glaze Nova alternating between being layered over black and alone.

  1. LOL. Well, the reality is, in maybe 20 years or so, your daughter will look back and laugh. She will be utterly embarrassed in the moment though. =] What a cool mom =D

  2. It's one thing to chaperone, but oh dear me no picture taking Mom!
    Cut the girl a break! LOL! If you do take a photo, PLEASE be stealth about it. Poor thing...first dates are awkward enough without a mom taking embarrassing photos. :)

  3. Oh no! I totally understand where you are coming from but if my mom would insist on going on my date I would just forget about the date and find other ways to see him without mom there.

    Tips for pics: if yo usit in front of them you might be able to take pics with the lighting from the screen. Just don't forget to turn off the flash. lol

  4. HA! I would love to take a picture - she would not allow that! So I know if I do I'll have to be sneaky. Which let's get real - she knows me and probably knows I plan on being sneaky about it!

    I did tell her I would "drop her off" meet the boy and then go park and just go to the movies a few minutes after her so she doesn't have to totally feel like a loser.

    I just think at this age she is too young to date alone, but how could I say no! My mom was so strict that I know the sneaky things kids do. I am no fool. So her sleepover at her friends tomorrow night is now at my house, under my watch. Poor kid!

  5. Heh heh! I think it's so cute how you're handling all this dating thing. Taking a picture of the pair?! :D Your daughter would be soooo embarrassed!

    Lovely nails there! As for the alternating colours, well, great minds think alike! ;D

  6. Take a picture! I did it to Lydia...I thought it was my prerogative as her mother to retain blackmail material for later use. lol
