    Just looked that up. I think she's already found them because I remember her singing their version of the Star Wars theme around the house. I wondered where that came from....LOL. I miss so much when I don't get to be at home with her.

    Hee hee. I am so dreading her teenage years that I cannot think past it. In my darkest moments, I start wondering if she'd be better off going to a specialized residential program at age 13 and that might just be the driving factor behind my excitement over her passion for ballet and music. whistle

    Agree, I LOVE this thread too! Here is my quirky post.
    Dd4 told me yesterday to quickly find a good high school for her. When I asked her what the hurry is, she replied that she is all set through middle school as her school goes up to middle but she needs to go to another school for high. If I find one soon that is good, I can pay the tuition so they will hold a spot for her.

    I wish I had this kind of strategic planning!Lol

    Beware: there are eleventy billion Warriors books and they're very popular (hence, hard to get at the library). Ask me how I know (says the owner of many Warriors books). It's a richly detailed world, but not the quality of writing of many great kids' books. DD ate 30+ of them up but then was done.

    Last night, DD8 brought home a notification that she's been selected as a student of the month. It has always bothered her before when she wasn't selected, and she was clearly elated that she finally was.

    At dinner I got up to get something from the kitchen, and knocked over a drink that had been left on a kitchen counter in the process. DD jumped up from her seat and came to my assistance to clean it up, unhesitating, and unasked. Usually, she doesn't even want to clean up her own messes.

    This is her mom's kid. I always considered citizenship awards to be a kind of consolation prize.

    YES, this.


    Ugh. So glad to be past that stage. I know, I know-- she was reading, she was happy... I just found the entire thing insipid as all get-out.

    I guess it's no worse than my penchant for trashy Regency novels in between more serious fare, though. wink
