Some of you may know that my daughter has been sick in the last week and I wasn’t sure if she’d start school today. She’s going to junior high now, which of course is a VERY BIG DEAL. I just wanted you to know that she has improved tremendously and was able to start 7th grade this morning with the rest of her classmates.
She was nervous and excited. So was I, but for different reasons. It felt a little bit like throwing her to the wolves- some of those junior high boys have actual facial hair! And the makeup on the girls, whew! Heavy eyeliner, boobs, hair, ugh!! These kids are 11-13 years old (going on 16, apparently!). My little girl looked very, very little. I had to fight the impulse to just scoop her up and take her right back home.
She’ll be fine, right??
