Fair or not? Prom dress woes - Update in comments today!
We have custody of dd19 and sd17. Dd is in college, sd is a hs junior. When dd was in hs, dh said, don't spend a lot on her prom dress, so we set a limit of 200 dollars for junior and senior year.
Now sd is going to prom. I say same rules apply. If bm wants to add to the 200 and get a more expensive dress, that's fine, but I say we spend no more. Bm says she's picking the dress, we're paying, end of story. Dh is stuck in the middle (which is really pissing me off).
Oh, and sd is worried that we won't find a nice dress for 200, but she's willing to look and try. And she doesn't want bm to go dress shopping. Dh thinks she should go because she's the bm.
What say you?
