Then, I had children. Every time one of my 3 beautiful daughters tried out and was in a sport, made honor roll, got student of the month, etc., I just tooted their (and my) horn.
Imagine my excitement when our youngest, Lyndsey, was selected by her peers to be Junior Homecoming Princess. Lyndsey is a 4.0 GPA student, works 2 jobs, is 5', 9 1/2" tall and is a "good" girl, and I mean that. No drugs, drinking, sex, etc. and yes, she is that honest with me, and I believe her. She was surprised she got voted in, because though she gets a long with everyone, she doesn't subscribe to the common "sleaze factor" that the "popular" girls have.
