Not much time to write tonight because I'm celebrating with my daughter. She was just accepted to her number one choice of colleges for next year. I'm incredibly proud of her and so happy that she's going to be where she wants to be, where she feels she "fits in."
The high school years are rough. I advise any of you with kids this age to buckle up. Academically, socially, these are tough times for kids. We've been waiting with bated breath for months now. She was accepted into almost all the schools where she applied, but this is the place she wants to be.
There are times when we have to accept as parents that things are out our control. We can't make everything right for our kids. When did this happen? And when did she get to be 18 and ready to go to college?
I will ponder these questions tomorrow. Tonight I'm off to drink my celebratory champagne. Cheers!
