It's a milestone day here in the Mustang household.
Mustang Girl is going out on her first "official" date. She's gone on group things where boys happen to be present, she's had boyfriends.
This one, though, is smart. He asked MM's permission to take her on a date, as her Christmas present. He even called here yesterday, to discuss the details of it, with ME.
She is clueless as to where they are going, what they are doing. He is even bringing her ROSES.
I find myself giddily excited about this, because, I have not really gotten to experience a whole lot of milestones with MG. She was 12 almost 13 when I met her, grown, really. Walking, talking, eating, using the bathroom properly. There are few and far between milestones after a kid can do all that. This is one of them. Its a big one.
I remember my first date. Ironically, it is almost identical to what she is doing, today. Lunch, and a movie. I didn't get flowers, though. I remember my Mom telling me to "order the chicken", and not the most expensive thing on the menu because you don't want to spend all the boy's money. (I will not have to give her this speech, nor would I. He is taking her to a sandwich shop for lunch :). I liked chicken, (still do) so that wasn't a hardship.
So, it's a Milestone Day....

The boy brought her red roses, beautiful. She was totally flustered, didn't quite know what to do with them, handed them to me! So she is out on her date, and I get to enjoy the pretty flowers, LOL
