Lawd! In all that is holy! Why didn’t anyone tell me that having a child about to graduate high school was more stressful than going through it yourself? I am completely burned out already. I thought my senior year was rough but watching your child go through it is something else. I don’t know who is more stressed her or me. I swear I am going crazy. Trying to help my child apply for colleges, making sure she is still keeping up with her grades, waking up to make sure she makes her SAT/ACT tests. It has us both on edge and super moody at times. The first semester isn’t even over and I am ready to tap out. But then I think that we have come too far for me to just give up now. Oh and did I mention the money. My goodness! I am just gonna need you all to pray for us. I know we are all going to make it through. I just didn’t think it was going to be this stressful. Honestly it is all so overwhelming. She has already gotten one acceptance letter and now we are waiting on the others.
My daughter is probably ready to get it over with just as much as I am. I mean she is the one actually going through and have this woman who keeps nagging her with so many details. I am not going to say who the woman is. At the end of the day I am so excited for her. I really am just ready to see her walk across the stage. I have another 2 years before my next child graduates. I am definitely going to need some time to recover. But I will be better prepared for my next child to walk. Cause I will have already been through it. Any child after your first child will probably have it better than the first. Cause the first child is always the guinea pig.
However all jokes aside I am so proud of my baby. The stress is all worth it because the end result will be her getting that diploma. I wouldn’t miss that moment for the world.
