I came to the realization last week that I am indeed done.
After 8 years of being heavily involved in our elementary school as a parent volunteer – I am done.
My second child is officially a ‘Middle Schooler’
Let me repeat that – I have TWO children in Middle School.
And I am SO HAPPY!
I was not expecting that elated feeling – but that is the feeling.
Lulu got a little special treatment the day before I surprised her with her first mani.
During her ceremony each student makes a small speech. Hers was wonderful.
We expected no less. She tends to over achieve.
I on the other hand was thinking – save those tears for Middle School!
But she was not shedding any tears over the presentation of…
the cell phone.
I am a sucker for anything that promotes independence. And she was ready.
We stuck with our original plan we used with Colby. A text and talk phone with a contract we all sign.
High expectations were set. Which, if followed would lead to a better phone – later on.
I am sure she will meet those expectations too. Did I mention she is an over achiever?
So grown up. So ready for Middle School!
is THRILLED that her pack is back home full time!
