My oldest girl is attending an Intensive Acting Workshop this summer. Six hours a day, four weeks, ending in a performance of The Insect Play.
And something big is happening.
I dropped her off one morning, as usual. She hopped out of the car, paused to throw on a fashionable silk jacket over her t-shirt and jeans, and ran off with a quick, “Bye, Mom!”
And she looked like one of Those Theater People.
So sure of herself.
So certain that her future is going to be great.
And I fell in love like the first time I saw her.
And in the same instant realized it’s all part of her leaving.
That’s not what I had planned when I started my giveaway project. *sniff*
