Planetary Costs

First Holy Communion is tomorrow for Bones. I was thinking about the differences between having a boy and a girl and came up with these thoughts…

Girl:

Dress: $50
Shoes: $50
Veil: $10
Socks: $2
Accessories: $20
Time to Get Ready: 1 hour (There is hair to do)
Probability of having a melt down? High.


Boy:

White tie: $10
White shirt: 0 (passed down from older brother)
White undershirt : 0 (passed down from older brother)
Socks: 0 (already owned)
Blue Pants: 0 (wearing school church pants)
Shoes: $15 (Payless Special)
Belt: 0 (already owned)
Time to Get Ready: 5 minutes
Probability of having a major meltdown? Low

I’m glad I have boys…

You said it Denny. That's exactly what TGOO and Hubba are hoping for. If I have a little girl with hair like mine...it might take more than an hour to get ready. ;-)

A young lady in our town has twin daughters who will be receiving their first this May.

She is looking to get the veils from Ireland. She is out of her mind. (I mean really. She now knows that she should have ordered them in January so that she would have them, for sure, from Ireland by May.)

I will have to say here that having had one of each, my son could (at times) be just as expensive as my daughter. He grew so fast... If I bought him a suit for a special occasion, it was inevitable that he would have outgrown it for the next occasion. So, while darling daughter was always needing a dress for something, young son was always needing new dress clothes or even new suits for each event.

Ah, soooo true.
