Off to camp! And 14 year old Drama..
I took my baby girl to the bus this morning to go off to Girl Scout Camp! It's her first time going and she didn't have any friends going with her. She will be gone until Friday! I know she will have a great time though! I ended up following the bus 1/2 of the way home (I had to take her to a larger city for the pick up). As soon as we turned off the freeway I had two big tears drop out. I can't believe I'm becoming such a softy!!
Yesterday Jessica got her hair cut. After we got home I saw her with the straight iron and putting make up on, so knew she was taking pictures of herself to put on myspace. She left her camera card in the computer so nosy mom looked to see what she did.
I guess the new thing now is to take a picture with a message in the mirror lol. She's so funny. Cracks me up how she always makes these weird faces. I've told her if she would just smile she would look so pretty, but she apparently think the nose scrunch and the tongue to the side is much more glamorous. I don't get it!
And see the glasses? She bugged me LIKE CRAZY to get contacts. She wore them all the time when she first got them. For a couple weeks. Now it's back to the glasses?? Apparently it's takes too much time to put them in in the morning.
She is going to summer school and over the weekend she decided she wasn't going to go anymore. She is taking PE from 8-1:30. In that time period they have one or two breaks and a lunch so really not that long of actual "work". Part of me wanted to let her drop out but the other part was like WTH?? You put me through going to get you the "proper" clothes for the class, not to mention having to make sure she got signed up right and taking her all last week. And it's only 19 more days. 19 days and a whole year of PE is done!
So this morning I told her it was time to get up and she did the whole "I'm not getting up" thing. I was thinking HTH am I going to get her up. I mean really she's almost bigger then me now (she IS taller). I just said you HAVE to go. Then LIGHTBULB. I opened her door back up and said "If you don't get up I'm taking your phone for the week!"
Guess where she's at now???Pin It
