A visit to the high school. Help!
Wednesday, April 07, 2010
My daughter starts high school in the fall and we got to visit with all the club leaders and discuss activities. My Mary likes acting and singing and wants to teach special ed, so we looked around. She joined Best Buddies, which pairs a disabled child with a student for fun and friendship. She joined Improv. and a group on child care. I made her sign up for Newspaper, (she likes to write) and an adorable Sophomore boy got her to join Yearbook.
I was not worried about her in high school until last night. Some of those kids look kind of tough and sort of wild. My girl does not even like to wear makeup yet, and many of the girls wear more makeup than I do. And I am 43 years old, with plenty to cover up.
This is my firstborn and I am just a nervous mom, I suppose. You just hear such horror stories about high school. I hope that the next four years are a joy and not a terror.
