Could somebody please explain how today I woke up to discover my firstborn is a FREAKING JUNIOR?

My little treefrog. My 5 lb 6 oz baby who's little bottom fit into my a FREAKING JUNIOR. IN. HIGH. SCHOOL.

Now I know this should be about him and his awesomeness, but really, I'm gonn a make it about me. Because let's face it, I'm way too cute and way too young to be the mother of a 16 year old HIGH SCHOOL JUNIOR.

He started a new school today. They aren't quite year 'round, but close. It's a Math and Science charter school (sadly 2 of his weakest subjects) but it's very student focused, with very small classes and an extended school day for students who need the extra attention. He's pretty excited about the school even though he's not too happy about his summer ending a month early.

My son is a JUNIOR.

I may need a day or two to process this. Wake me up before he graduates, mmmkay?


  1. Dude. You're like, old and stuff. But still hot, so it's all good.

  2. My son yelled "Bye,Mom. I love you." across the house a MAN'S voice. I won't lie. I had to redo my mascara.

  3. I hear ya. I'm still trying to figure out how I have a child in the first place, and then how she got to be old enough to have a summer job, wear makeup, drive a car... I'm too young. I don't even want to think about college next year. :shudder:

  4. well, his first day at his new school seems to have been a success.

    I asked him how his day went and he answered: "There were girls! Lots and lots of girls!"

    heh. Guess two years at an all boys school made him forget...

  5. My daughter starts high school this year. I'm trying not to vomit. LOL
