I guess I'm old...

I didn't really feel that old until today.  I had an appointment at my daughter's middle school about what she wants to be when she grows up.  The guidance counsellor made sure to remind her about the fact that next year's 9th grade classes will go on her permanent record and she needs to keep a high GPA.  NINTH GRADE!!  Do you realize that's just a couple years before driving age??!!   He's talking to her about the college level classes she should take and I'm thinking:  Hey, it hasn't been that long since I was in college....right?? 

The days of innocence are fading.  Soon I'll have to worry about boys calling and "hanging out" around our refrigerator and our daughter.  Soon we'll have to add a teenager on the car insurance.  Soon we'll have to find a clunker for the teenager to drive (it ain't gonna be my car!).  With high school will come the football games, the homework that's really hard and -- Oh My-- PROM NIGHT!!!!

She told the counsellor she wants to go into interior design, but I think we'll find a nunnery instead.
