First, seeing my big boys all dressed up in ties and dress shirts makes me panic. SO MUCH TO DO, SO LITTLE TIME LEFT! I am proud of them but I would like to add another decade of parenting if I could.
They, on the other hand, were horrified to have to dress like this. It was a requirement for a college class they both take. They had to present powerpoint presentations dressed in business attire.
After their presentations I got a call to pick them up and they said the school was on fire. All casual like that. Don’t worry, they said, the school had not yet been evacuated. I almost had a heart attack. I FLEW to get them, seeing this HUGE black smoke cloud hovering over their pickup area. I realized when I got there that the fire wasn’t at the school but a shopping area right behind the school. They evacuated the school shortly after we left. Scary!
Parenting – it isn’t for sissies!
