We are now 2 1/2 months away from Jennifer's bas mitzvah.
Jennifer has been planning for this occasion for the last 11 years 9 1/2 months.
Where did the time go?
Please understand that in our family, bas mitzvah events are low key affairs, appropriate for the significance of the milestone. There will be a home cooked party for her friends and classmates.
There will be no big catered affair with "facilitators" dressed in black lycra dresses and copper spangled bolero jackets.... no bunny ears prizes... no ten piece professional band.... no helium balloon sculptures large enough to launch the entire population of Nebraska into the stratosphere....
However, this doesn't stop Jen from agonizing about every tiny detail and of course, true to female form, changing her mind every 36 hours.
If she's this intense over her bas mitzvah, I seriously think we should let her elope one day ;)
