Proud and Sad Mommy moment

AHHHHH- I was soo soooo proud of Nathan on Saturday night. He not only *cleaned up well* but was sooo the gentleman I expected him to be ;-)

We took Nathan to fetch his date for the evening, Sarah, and to meet her parents. On leaving he opened the door and stepped aside for her to go through first, then when at the car- opened her door for her- and then made sure she was comfortable before closing it. Then went around to get in the other side. AHHH- I felt so good seeing that! I’ve always told him to at least try act like a gentleman even when the *lady* says she doesn’t need it etc. But to see it in action made this mommy VERY PROUD!

And just look at my grown up little boy- boohoo- not so much a BOY anymore-lol

I had to do some *sly* ones and can’t wait for the official ones to arrive ;-)

My flash hadn’t charged enough yet and this photo is not the best quality but you can at least see just how gorgeous they looked full length.

The back of Sarah’s dress. Was a crushed Velvet, simple but oh so elegant and pretty. Her coat and Nathan’s tie were the perfect match too!

And my Favourite- so natural and you can see the *reds* are just perfect!!

They made a very elegant couple stepping out the car at the entrance of the Dance.

Nathan has been asked to model his outfit at a fashion show tonight-lol . I asked him if he knew how to walk on a ramp?- He of COURSE now with a smug grin on his face, turns around and swaggers his hips like a woman on steroids and 10 carrots stuck up his *backside*- BWWWWWWWWWWAHAHAHAHAHA, we both ROLLED with laughter and kept giggling for most of the afternoon every time we looked at each other. ;-)

Wow, He sure is a young gentleman. I love when my kids show others that manners were taught to them. It makes all those "what am I gonna do with this kid? moments worth it. I am sending my oldest baby way away on a plane Thursday to nanny for some people. Wish me luck.(Insert hysterical crying)

Rose said...

I hope my son grows up to respect women too, seems it's lacking so much in society these days, and when I started going out with my husband I was all women's lib, I can open my own door thank you very much, but it does make me feel special when he takes that extra moment to open my door for me. Great job on raising a polite and respectful young man!!
