Today my daughter is running for Student Council again. She has to give her speech, and then the school votes. She'll find out by the end of the day if she's made it.
She was on the Council last year and really loved it and worked so hard! I was incredibly proud of how seriously she took her job. She even went to a few PTA meetings (I don't go to PTA meetings!), and was constantly working on different projects.
So now that she knows what she'd be missing if she isn't elected...it's killing her that it's not her choice, that she has to be elected. She's super nervous.....and I am too. My stomach is in knots today and I feel sick!!
Adding to the nervousness.....last year after her speech, she tripped over the microphone cord, and knocked over the entire stand. I told her about that Roseanne episode when Becky farted during her speech.....and that didn't help, just made her more aware of her bodily functions. Poor kid!! I'd hate to be ten again!! So she's really paranoid about the speech today, too. My poor baby girl!
