My gorgeous eldest daughter turned 16 recently...we are officially at the age of the driver's license and driver education classes!
I am amazed by the young woman I live with. She is so very confident, so comfortable in her own skin at such a young age. During the first week of high school this year she came home all excited because she was given Sports Advertising as an elective class. Supportive, I thought it was great and told her so! "And I am the only girl in the class with 24 guys"
"How do you think that happened?", I asked her.
"Well, I do have a name that can be used for a girl or a boy so maybe that's it"
"Oh, yes", I said, "Well, look, if you want me to give the school a call and change you out..."
"No, that's ok, I think I like it!"
You go, girl!
