First Day Of High School

Today the daughter got out of bed without being yelled at, ate breakfast, made herself a sandwich, and went to her first day of high school -- she is in the ninth grade.

Of course I felt older and crustier than ever before, but I was proud that all was progressing as planned.

My role in her continued development will be to ineffectually remind her to clean her room. I had my chance to influence her upbringing, but, I guess, that day is past.

Here is the video of the historic moment:


  1. I love the video, and I love that you made a video of it. When you've been parenting awhile like we all have, we can convince ourselves that we're immune to the importance of marking these milestones. Happy to see this. Hope she had a good first day.
