My daughter called home from camp last night.
It's been over a week since I dropped her at camp and it felt SO good to hear her voice.
I wanted to know everything about camp. Were her counselors nice? Was she eating the food? How was her bunk?
She told me there's lots of "draaaaahhhhhma" in her bunk.
She's 10. How much drama can there be? I got really nervous. This was it...tweenager-hood. I had sent a young girl off to sleepaway camp and I was going to pay for it by getting back a dramatic teenager. I braced myself for the inevitable; someone was upset about a boy. Someone was bitchy. Someone got their period...
"What's the drama about, honey?"
"_____ was making their bed, and it was a top bunk and when they stepped off they accidentally crushed _____'s plastic box with all her stuff. She started crying."
"Oh. Can you send me a poster of a duck? My wall is sooooooooooooo empty."
What a relief. Maybe I'll be getting my girl back after all.
