Mother of the Bride
Been sort of distracted from my children's book world this week by happy family matters, including a senior recital and choir concert and competition.
One upcoming event will be the launch of Operation Wedding Dress. We've already watched Father of the Bride#1 and Father of the Bride#2, for Treebeard's sake. I enjoy the Steve Martin version, in part because the family lives in a town where I used to live, a long time ago. I have been seeking the wisdom of wedding gurus and sensei who have been through the process.
Entling no. 1 and I have been cybershopping, "hey, look at this one," but we have not yet ventured into an actual salon de wedding.
These ABC Primetime pieces have given me pause.
This one: "...a challenge for the compulsive"
Ha, I'm not compulsive. On the other hand, a control freak? Yes.
No pressure: "...that pinnacle purchase"
I better bring tissues.
Finally, I think that if NewsBoy popped out and asked me, "Mom, what did you really think?" after testing my "honesty" this way I would answer, "I think I am going to rap you on the head with that boom mic and throttle you with this veil.
Thank you to AFriendIndeed who pointed me to the episode.
