My Oldest is having her Sweet Sixteen next year.
I am paying for the band and Dj, $2000 there, plus she wants a Hummer Limo to drive her from the Church, her mother is Catholic, to the Hall. $1500 for the hummer. I am having an issue with all of this money. I don't mind making my child happy, its just that 3-4 grand on a Sweet Sixteen party is a little too much money for a few hours of fun and showing off to her friends. Plus I was offended when she did not want me to play a set. Her excuse: "dad. none of my friends like house music, they want to hear EMO and Hip Hop." damn kids. lol
I stressed to her that any other expenses will come out of her savings.......
but she is a straight A student, Is the President of the Student Body and Student Council. Is on a fast track to graduate when she is 17 and is already taking college courses.
Smart lil lady there, must take after her mum.
p.s. I used the word MUM to talk down to your euros/aussies level.
Here in the states, a mum is a flower you wear at homecomings high school football games. ha ha
