Good call, K. I agree, she should work her ass off to be in great shape, do her hair and makeup beautifully, and practice the mantra "Princesses are ALWAYS pretty!!!" and she’ll be just fine.
I too had an experience like this one not too long ago. Unfortunately, I took the road less travelled and caused World War 3 in my family. My niece asked me to be maid of honor at her wedding. It was an honor and in the heat of the moment, I said yes. But then reality hit. I had just had my second son and was MORE than a little bit lumpy. She started sending all the dress ideas via e-mail and I became more and more panicked!! I couldn’t handle the whole sausage squeezing into the too small casing thing. And, I was tired … exhausted from lack of REM sleep … and she was beginning to look like a bit like Bridezilla. So, I took a huge breath … and backed out as gently as I could!
Long story short, she is still not speaking to me today, even though the marriage has ended. The issue brought out a side of her I had never seen, so I’m really not all that heart-broken. This is a girl for whom I had done a million things … who could rely on me more than she could her mother. I tried to explain that I really was honored, but that it was a really challenging time in my life … but no go. So …. unless Jode wants to face that kind of wrath, I suggest she go the "grin-and-bear-it route.
That’s my two cents for today. Cleaning like a mad woman and am just about to settle down to help my youngest with his project for school.
RGThis moment is all we really have. Be happy in it.
