Tereya's Prom Story: Preparing For The Big Day

It's Prom Season
Tereya decided in junior year that she was not going to her senior prom. In fact she was adamant about not attending senior prom. It was not a topic for discussion in our house. However, when senior year began all that changed. Needless to say, I was ecstatic. She participated in all of the senior activities and get this, she actually enjoyed it. As the months past, we were hunting for the perfect prom dress, after party outfit and vehicle.

She new she wanted a mermaid style prom dress. Every weekend for four months straight, we went to boutiques and local dress stores. Tereya tried on several dresses. Unfortunately, she did not find a dress that she liked or loved. Our next option was to get her dress made. However, my daughter whom I love dearly suggested we go to Macy's. So off to Macy's we went.

While at this department store, Tereya tried on dress after dress and she did not like any of them. It appeared this trip was an epic fail. As we prepared to leave, a dress caught her eye and she began to smile. Something she had not done since we started shopping for dresses months earlier. Happily, I told her to try on the dress. As I waited for her to exit the fitting room, I began to think "this could be the one". When she exited the room there was a glow in her eye and she was smiling from ear to ear. I knew at that moment she found her prom dress. As a result of the dresses plunging neckline, we needed to focus on the undergarments as they as just as important as the dress.

While at Macy's we went to the lingerie department to look at some brassiere's and shape-wear. Thankfully, this process was painless and we were able to find the perfect brassiere and tummy control undergarment. Before we left the store, Tereya wanted to visit the shoe department to look for a nude strappy shoe. She saw a nude sandal named Stecy Two Piece Sandal by Steve Madden. Unfortunately, the shoe was not available in her size. However, she was able to find a nude sandal at the Designer Shoe Warehouse (DSW). Keep reading to see Tereya's final look for prom and the afterparty.

Your Child Is LGBT..It's Not The End Of The World!

I am not a parent of a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual or Transgender (LGBT) child, so I cannot say I understand what a parent of a LGBT child is going through. However, I have friends and family members who are and have children who are LGB so I can relate to a certain degree. Growing up I had friends who were gay and who were lesbians. A few of them told me and a few of them hid it from me. Why? I have no idea. What they failed to realize was I already knew, but I wanted them to tell me on their own. It is on no account painless for mothers and fathers to find out that their son or daughter is a lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. Nor is it any easier for the child to tell their mother, father, friends or other family members that they are or may be a lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. I remember the day someone very close to me told me he was attracted to guys. He was so nervous. As he began to speak, he started stuttering and sweating bullets. After he finished speaking I did no

Being a Bold Leader

Stop and think about the following questions.   1. What does it mean to be bold? 2. What does it mean to be a leader?  3. Would you consider yourself bold, a leader or a bold leader?  There are several definitions and interpretations of what it means to be bold and to be a leader. My interpretation of being bold is not being afraid to take risks or make decisions (that lead to a positive result). I also think being bold is displaying confidence and courage as someone works to fulfill their purpose in the world. My interpretation of a leader is someone who has good organization skills which is required when working in a team setting or organization. I also think leaders stand behind their teams and works diligently to bring out the best in everyone. My interpretation of a bold leader is a combination of bold and leaders previously stated above. In addition, a bold leader is someone who has a clear vision, purpose, and a plan of action. It is someone who can get tho

What is happening to her? Puberty!

Today, our kids are exposed to so much information. Unfortunately, not all information is true and nor is the information from credible sources. However, discussions such as puberty among other topics should occur with the parents. Puberty is a very difficult stage for girls, boys and the family. They are very temperamental and often feel insecure. So as parents, it is our responsibility to reassure them that the changes they are going through emotionally, mentally and physically are normal. Puberty has reared its ugly head in my home. You would think I would be prepared since I have experienced this with my older daughter. The truth is I am prepared. However, I was not expecting it to happen so quickly. I have noticed kids are experiencing puberty a lot faster than in prior generations. Sadly, this has a lot to do with the meat and dairy. There are a lot of chemicals in our food and as a result of that, it is making our children develop a lot faster. As an adult, I do not recal
