M'BOYS...ALL DRESSED UP AND GOING TO (JUNIOR) PROM... :') :') :')

Did any of you have a Jr. Prom? My high school only had The Prom senior year, but some other schools around the area had both proms. TBH, I thought prom was pretty overrated, but it was still fun. I remember they served us food and it wasn't all that great...the food was supposed to be the highlight of my night LMAO IT WAS THE BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT.

Also little announcement: The comic will only be updating on Sundays for the time being. I was getting a little carried away with myself updating on Wednesdays too BUT I WANTED TO GET TO THIS SCENE SO IT'S OKAY. Just gotta refill my buffer LOL!

I absolutely love Daniel's mom.
She is everything I aspire to be when/if I ever become a parent. To be supportive and loving even when I know others may not.

@Idealweirdo: Thank you, I really appreciate this :) <3
He’s wearing exactly what my sister’s prom date wore this is some 2009 realness lol
This comic is unique and amazing. I've really enjoyed reading it. All of the characters have so much depth, and are very lovable and easy to relate with. As a parent, I completely understand and agree with how Melina handled the situation with Daniel. Sometimes it's hard to watch them grow up, but you realize that they are and you have to give them room to spread their wings. Even when you're afraid of them falling. Thank you so much for all of the time and energy you put into bringing them all to life.
AWWWW!!!
OMG!!!
Daniel is like. 'Holy fuk she's right!'
AND IT'S ABOUT TIME YOU REALIZE THAT!!
EEEE! I'M SQUEALING AT HOW CUTE HE IS BEING!!!!

Also, thank you so much to all of you reading, giving likes/comments, and sharing the comic with others. I appreciate it all so much. <3 !!
