Yes, that’s what I am. I’m a little chagrined to realize how much of a one I’m turning out to be. Granted, I always knew I would be a little over protective. But considering how much freedom I had growing up, I had hopes of allowing my daughter the same. Not so.
Soso has been doing two days of camp that involve field trips. Once I realized how far they were venturing out, I knew I would only be comfortable with Soso going when one of us was a chaperon.
Well, today was supposed to be a movie day. We only found out last night that the the camp was to a museum. A museum that involvesdriving on a couple of highways that I’m not too crazy about! I’m ALWAYS hearing about an accident on Route 78! Plus there’s a thunder storm coming.
So, I sat in my office at 9AM with increasing anxiety level and butterflies in my tummy and decided to keep Soso back. I just knew that I wouldn’t be able to focus on anything let alone work if I let her go.
Poor Soso. I do feel sorry for her. Thankfully at 5, she gets over disappointments quickly. I just hope that my mother hen tendency abates a little as she gets older. Other wise, I may have a child who will bolt from the nest at the first opportunity!
