Parenthood 101

At 8:30 this morning I got a call. It’s DD. Her words: “Hey Mom. Are you near a computer?”

Me, waking up and wondering what’s going on: “No.”

Her: “Okay. Well, we’ll figure something out.”

Me: “What’s going on?”

Her: “We’re in Houston looking for a CVS or Wal-Mart or something to
print some pictures. We’re in an Asian neighborhood I think. Nothing’s
in English. Wait. Yes, a Korean neighborhood. We just passed a church.”

She and her best friend went to Houston today so friend could try
out for America’s Next Top Model. Friend forgot her pictures.
Fortunately they made it safe and sound to the mall. The next call came
much later. Now they were in Seabrook, and she said I would love it
there. Friend didn’t make ANTM, so they went to the beach. ACK!

Her friend comes home tomorrow and classes start Monday. Fingers
crossed the wandering child sticks closer to school for a while or
Mom’s going to have a heart attack.
