WELL DONE Drama Teen

Yesterday was RESULTS DAY for A Level students, which of course meant that Drama Teen would find out if she got the grades to go to her first choice University.  And she DID :-)  Despite her hard work and resits her results aren't as good as she wanted, but they were still good enough to get her into University.  I am very very proud of the work Drama Teen put in to get to this position and I've positive she is going to go out into the world and make a difference :-)  Good luck Drama Teen - spread your wings and fly...

For me this means that I can't keep hiding my head in the sand, and I have to face up to the fact that Drama Teen really is going to leave home for University :-(  I've been presented with a shopping list of things she needs to take with her, and its all becoming very very real :-(  I've always believed my "job" as a parent is to give my children secure roots, and the confidence to grow wings and fly to their next adventures when the time comes.  I still believe in this, its just letting my little fledgling spread her wings and fly on her own is harder than I thought!
