Here we are again, the last time I will be told my son is going to your event at the last minute and I have to scramble to make it all come together as if, like all the other mother’s in the world, it was no sweat off my back. I feel like I just fake it til I make it most of the time with you. This last event of yours has been one surprise after another. I don’t even know where to begin!
You happen today, we FINALLY got his tux……TODAY!!!! We did go get him sized on Thursday, and that came with a surprise right there too. We walked in and the first thing the lady asked us, “what is your date wearing?” (oh in my mind, he was going stag, just with a group of friends) he pipes up with, “I’m not sure exactly, I’ll have to ask her.” I could feel my eyes welling up with tears not because he had a date but because I HAD NO IDEA!!!!! We walk out of there with me saying, “what the #$#@%^?, why am always the last one to know?” Ok, so I have a few days to get over that……
THEN, my girl friend came over along with Brayden’s senior friend to do some graduation preparing stuff today, the day of your event, when Sherry walks thru the door to greet us and turns to Brayden with this, “Oh Brayden it’s so exciting you are on the royalty court, are you ready to get crowned tonight?” Ok, are you serious, my mouth flew open, there was no holding it back as if I already knew that he was going to be on court. I mean, what am I chopped liver? WHY am I the last one to KNOW these things? I seriously don’t get it!!!! Your event creates this ‘let’s rain on mom’s parade’ pretty much every other day for several days.
SO, this is the deal, he is probably not going to be very happy about this but I’m coming to invade your party, to watch him get crowned or not, to be apart, to be……the one to know when it all actually happens or doesn’t happen, nobody will have to tell me AFTER the fact because I will see it with my own eyeballs.
So, I will see you soon.
Sincerely, The mother who is the last to know
And look at my smashing HOT GOLDEN son! He always is unique and he did not surprise me by this one tinnie bit on this one.
He really does make me happy.
Good friends always.
If this isn’t the handsomest………
Look at all these gems.
All the Rainier group!
What a bunch of handsome boys.
Oh Bray, I love you, thank you for being such a great person in my life.
Overall I am a grateful Momma, I will for sure keep you informed of the outcome of the ‘crowning’, it will be nice to be the informer over the being informed.
