College, college, college - I will be soooooooooooo glad to have the decision made and the deposit in. I will also be so glad when a date for the senior prom is sewn up. So many things up in the air, so much drama, I really can't take it much more. Where's the reference book for me to read up on how to deal with issues of an 18 year old daughter. Most nights I lay my head down on my pillow and it feels like it will just explode. My gut tells me everything will be just fine, the heart sometimes feels like it will just break.
The official college count is seven out of seven - however we've narrowed it down to two choices, and we will be revisiting one of them this weekend. A decision will be made by day's end on Saturday.... at least that is what this mom is counting on.
The prom........ why do they make it mandatory to have a date? That's fine for the girls who are "popular" by today's standards but what about those whose self-confidence has taken many hits over the the course of grade school and high school?
It will all work out, I know, but the process of getting there is exhausting. I don't have all of the words of wisdom to give - I didn't date in high school - I had bad skin, braces, and very wavy hair that had a mind of its own. I can't offer advice other than to say it will all work out in the end.... this coming from a girl who wore a dress her mom made to the senior prom!
None of my photos have anything to do with this post but they are colorful and fun glimpses of our Easter Sunday.
It will all work out....... I just may not survive it....
