my 20 yo is just now starting to come around. you know that saying about wrestling with the pig in the mud, that was us... she enjoyed it, and I just got dirty. When I left her alone, she started to realize the real world is a cruel place, LOL
youngest... sigh So much natural athleticism, and intelligent, holy crap is she smart. So much so, she's blowing a full ride athletic scholarship, and managed a 0.0 her first semester. At 19, she has it all figured out.
I expected it out of the oldest, the youngest one literally turned over night. It was like a switch got flipped with her. There were some professional coaches that would watch her run and said she had a shot to compete nationally, potentially internationally. Also a fantastic swimmer, might have made a great triathlon competitor. But, we're just wondering what she's going to do next. While she's extremely intelligent, so is mom, and step dad isn't too far behind them
But, we have decades of experience on her
