When I had my daughter I was young and unmarried. I stopped going to dances and buying extras to save money. I needed the money to support my child. Going to school,working, and raising a child took all my time. I did this to set an example for my daughter. My ex never gave me a dime. I was only on welfare for 3 months. I am 44 now,own a home, and have finished sending my daughter to nursing school. Do not waste time and money, look at the bigger picture. Take the prom money and open a savings account for your sons college fund.

When i went to my senior prom last year one of the girls brought her son with her and she had a great time with him... she said it wouldn't have been the same with out him... so if you feel like you wanna take him for memories and have him be in the pictures with you then take him. But if your going to prom to have your own personal time and to just have a relaxing fun night... i would leave him with grandma... i say follow your heart :)

honestly i would leave him with grandma due to the fact that he is just a child and doesnt need to be out that late and it also gives you time to yourself which every mother knows is well needed sometimes.

I'm also attending my prom this year and I was planning to leave my son with my mom. There's absolutely nothing wrong with having "me" times and the prom should definitely be one of those times. Granted, you're not an average teenager now but prom should be the night where you get to feel like one again.

Well it would be harder to enjoy yourself and dance holding and tending to your baby all night. I say leave him with a babysitter and enjoy the prom and let him enjoy hanging out with grandma. :)

Don't take him with you. Prom is supposed to be a time for YOU to have fun. Most people understand that so it shouldn't be an issue finding a sitter. Just take it as a day off for some you time :)





Trust me, been there, done that, not fun
