Pre-college Blues

15 Jul

I am extremely proud of my daughter, as she prepares to begin the next phase: college. Nadiyah is headed off in seven short weeks and I have been excited for her. This was a great time in my life and I’m sure it will be for her.

With that said…I want her to leave…now!

I’ve had folks tell me that students do this to make it easier for them to leave. I’ve had folks say that kids get scared and anxious and lash out. Perhaps it’s a mixture of both and then some. I have never been as upset with her as I’ve been over the past month. Now let me state for the record that my daughter is only 17 and not past the hormonal teenagery bitchiness. BUT- all of a sudden – she does not listen, she does whatever she wants and cares about nobody but herself. The most interesting part is she’s only this way at home…interesting may not be the best word. Last week, I had a Bernie Mac out-of-body experience and all I wanted to do was “bust her head to the white meat!”

Seriously…I’m not liking her.

    I have a 17 year old son that has been in Houston training ballet for the summer for 5 weeks now. Been loving it! He will be back on Saturday. I totally understand.
