Today my daughter Emily starts Junior High.
Pardon me while I get out my bazooka.
We can now look forward to school dances, friends calling at all hours, being dropped off blocks away from destinations unknown, and your occasional silliness over which boy is the cutest in school.
We can also look forward to broken hearts, high-pressure homework, after-school clubs and activities, musicals, etc….
I know that my daughter Krystal has been excelling in her school, and that next year she will be starting High School. Yes, High School. And then Hannah will start her journey the year after that.
Maybe now it’s a good time to become an alcoholic… đŸ™‚
