Last week, for no reason at all I started freaking out about my daughter being at camp. I had an image of her sitting alone crying because she missed me. Then the camp director sent me this picture.

I guess that’s all the proof I need to know my daughter is having a blast at camp.

When I am at work I think non-stop about what she is doing at camp. I worry less now but it’s odd to not know what she’s doing. She’s having conversations that I will never be a part of and doing cool things I will never get to see her do. She’s growing up which is a great thing but I’ve found it’s a bigger adjustment for me than for her.

Next month, the parents get to come to camp to observe and I am so excited!

    Yay! Fun times for sure. Just look at that smile. Things like this always seem to weigh more on the moms than the kids…because we know what can go wrong, and they don’t. So we worry. It’s difficult, but I think you’re doing well adjusting. Always ask about what she did and said. There will be times that she won’t want to share, and that’s okay, but she’ll always know you’re there ready to listen.

    Parents day is just around the corner. Keep your chin up and remember that pic with that smile…and know you’ve done well in assuring she’s in a safe, happy place so you can do what you need to.

    Is she asking for her driver’s license and a car now?
