Well alrighty then...

My oldest beauty has been in every play and musical there is since she hit middle school. She even talked her doctor into putting her on "super drugs" to get her well in time to participate in one show when she was sixth grade. This child is a hard core performer I tell you.

But....


She is not trying out for Seussical this semester. Say it ain't so! Oh yeah. It's so.

I asked her if she just forgot to turn in her paperwork.

Her response was: "Well Ms. R wasn't there today. There was a sub."

So I responded, "Well if she was not there, I am sure she will take it first thing in the morning."

She responded: "No thanks. I'm not trying out."

HUH???

"What?!?! What do you mean you're not trying out. You were so excited about it. That's all you've talked about is Seussical. What's going on?"

She said.......




"I have to focus on school stuff. I'm trying to make sure I get recommended for some honor classes for high school. And I need to F-O-C-U-S. I don't have time for after school practices and stuff. There will be more plays in high school. I'll pass on this one so I can focus on what's important to me right now - the best grades possible."

Well alrighty then...

Teenagers. They are a strange lot and mine just amaze me everyday. I think that just makes me love them more!

Be blessed y'all, especially if you have teenagers!

Whoa! Who woulda thunk! Teenagers are a special group of little people! One never knows how they will respond or react in different situations. I'm proud of her decision!

Are you going to She Speaks, girlfriend? I'm planning on registering tomorrow. Hope so!!

Love you!
