The Lowdown on the Showdown



Wipes brow. I...well, we survived prom of 2009! Everything went as planned with the exception of the flood, the fight, the food poisoning, the minor mishap with the flower shop, a spousal spat (Why yes, another one!) , and the ubiquitous hairstyle from hell. The hairstyle from hell was Niqqi's drama but, we all know what a bad hairstyle can do to an otherwise great day! Jordan is well-versed in Black woman hair hell and kept his distance, allowing us a moment to curse the hairstylist and singe a few more curls into place before showtime.

When all was said and done, my rite of passage rival looked upon the fruit of my now thankfully barren womb, smiled broadly and in a sing songy tone said, "Wow, Jor-dan, you look so-o-o nice". Truth, I was so in the moment, I didn't even gloat. But, now that it's over- blows knuckles and rubs them on victorious chest-I knew he would, and all without compromising his personal style! There's good genes in these here jeans! And hers too, Niqqi looked absolutely gorgeous!

Here are a few...okay, more than a few of my favorite pics:








You'll be pleased to know that Joe redeemed himself by being the embarrassing clamber-into-the-limousine-to-get-one-more-shot parent!

Peace

hilarious commentary!
it's just good to know y'all made it through the whole process. the photos make me smile. although i was apathetic towards my own prom, i always like seeing pics from those whose involvement was on a level appropriate for the occasion.

That is awesome. You need to write a book on raising healthy multiracial homeschooled super cool kids. Tall order huh? Now, get to writing.

Love all the pictures too. Handsome young man. You're right...it's in the genes

Angela said...

Okay. I looked at your gorgeous photo and thought you were one of the high school girls! Nice job, lady!

Kathy said...

Awesome pictures and what a gorgeous group of young people...and that includes you! Brought back so many memories, not so much of my prom, but of my kid's proms. What fun. You will look back at those pictures for many many years to come.

What an exciting time for you! You earned another stripe in the parenting war! You both look wonderful, and I am really proud of the awesome job you have done with Jordan. You're kids are a pleasure - strong, self-assured children adorned with their mother's whit and charm.

Kudos!!

Flight Fancy said...

Aww....The kids all look great! Prom is definitely not for the faint hearted parent. I've been through 4 now....whew! Dad gets bonus points for the extra pics!

They all look so elegant and happy. Great job, SuperMom! Now, it sounds like it's time for a sanity break and a trip to a spa for you to have some "Me Time". :)

Here's hoping life settles down for you now...
