Oh my gosh!
I have always said April and May were the crazy busy months for all moms. Well, let’s ramp that up a gazillion notches when your daughter is a Senior in High School.
So much to do…so little time – is no longer a cliche – it is my existence!
I am enjoying all that we are doing, even though the pace seems a bit much! But hey, I think I am managing to stay on top of things, so it’s all good.
Graduation photos, invitations, events, preparations, plans for the future…it’s a never ending sea of “to do’s” for her and me! But it is all very exciting – although I am learning that my daughter at times does not have a clear grasp of reality.
Today said Senior daughter informed me as follows: “It seems the typical graduation gift my friends are getting is a car!”
Her eyebrow arched mother said, “Well, interestingly we are not typical!”
I was substitute teaching today at her school and I was hearing other kids talk about who got what car from their parents. Humpf.
One of her friends father’s pulled into the school parking lot today with a convertible Mustang for his child – somebody needs to slap that man. Didn’t he break some sort of “parent code” with that move?
My daughter then offered, “You have always said I would have to buy my own car, insurance and gas – I think it makes more sense for me to buy the insurance and gas, but you guys to buy the car…but actually I want a truck!”
You gotta give her some props for trying!
Unless the “car fairy” tucks some keys under that girls pillow…it’s not happening.
So tell me your thoughts does Senior Daughter = Bling With Wheels?
