With permission granted, Kylie and her young man have chosen where and when they plan to go on their date. The plan is he would pick her up from our house to go out, then we would pick them up from where they ended up going to watch the movie. My young lady was beyond excited about the upcoming day, and after we had a talk and got a new outfit she became a lot more settled.
We got her a cute peasant top with blues and reds that she planned to wear with jeans or the new pants we got to go with it. When the afternoon came, Kylie came to me and hugged me tightly. “Help me get ready,” she begged, trying to keep her excitement under control.
“You’ll be fine. Go start getting ready and I’ll help you finish.”
She tried not to rush off to start but in truth she did and after about half an hour she came back dressed in the shorts and top we had bought.
When she stepped out of her room and walked down the corridor to me I was blown away. I had to fight not to cry.
“You look so beautiful baby,” I hugged her tight then sat her down.
“You don’t need makeup but we have that really pretty lip gloss that we bought when we went shopping.”
Together we sorted out a hairstyle then did her face with a light dusting of translucent powder and the lip gloss.
“Perfect,” I said sitting back to see how she looked. “All ready?”
She gave me a shy smile. “All ready. Thanks for helping me mom. It may not look it but I’m so nervous.”
“Just be the amazing you that you are,” I whispered to her as there was a knock on the door. It was time for my baby to go on her first date.
