Bristol Palin tried to put on a happy face about her pregnancy while her mother was running for vice president in 2008, but the teen mom missed out on many adolescent opportunities, prom included. Palin told People that she skipped prom for financial reasons when she was pregnant with son, Tripp. "I don't have that kind of time. And the dress is, like, $400, and the shoes, hair, makeup—it's way too expensive," she said. Still, she admitted she was disappointed, saying missing out on that opportunity, "
kind of sucked, to tell you the truth." Though the oldest Palin daughter did graduate from Wasilla High School in May 2009, she also revealed there was baby spit-up on her dress and she was unable to attend her friends' graduation parties.
