Our middle daughter is a Senior this year, and last night was her last high school football game.
I didn't feel sad; I really just felt proud...proud of how far this one has come...proud of a developing individuality that I've waited 17 years to see. Proud of her willingness to love and forgive others and proud of her for telling me I'm the best mama in the world (That was Thursday btw...Friday, we were back to normal ;)
I got the "best mama in the whole wide world" award bc over the last 2 weeks I curtailed my snark (mostly) and worked behind the scenes to get things done.
My daughter is the only Senior on the dance team; I think for next year, all will be well and any stupid mamas will just have to deal...but my daughter didn't have the promise of next year.
The dance team sponsor got word Thursday that there would be room for all of the girls on Senior night...and no mama drama would be tolerated.
The Head of my Household and I purposely try our best to stay out of silly stuff at the school...so I called in every favor I've earned on this one. It worked.
The smile on the face above...all night long...was well worth the effort :)
