If only I could be my 18-year old (sometimes)

Friday, September 03, 2010

Yesterday was a banner day for my daughter. She's in college 700 miles away from home and admitedly the first week wasn't the best. A lot of loneliness, difficulty finding people she really wants to be friends with.

She really wanted to audition for the dance team. She had been dancing since she could walk, but stopped in HS to pursue other interests. Still, she always considered herself a dancer. The audition time was changed a couple of times and ended up at a time when she had a class. Through a lot of effort, she managed to get in touch with the coach who said she could audition Thursday night.

Well, she made it. I can't remember the last time she was so excited. But this is not the reason I'm writing...

As she told me all she has to do or will be doing, these were the items that excited her the most.

1) Technique class/personal training emoticonsession, - Monday mornings 6-8
2) Nutrition plan which they must follow - not a problem for her but something she's looking forward to.
3) Gets to eat in the Athletes' dining hall which has healthier choices.

As her mother, I'm so proud of her. I really need to take a page from her book.
