Thank you for all the encouragement/advise...it really is appreciated.
When I was 18 the last thing I would want to do is spend any amount of time with my parents in a small space but alas my daughter is a different kind of kid than I was and I like to think we are alot cooler parents than my parents were
In two weeks my daughter graduates high school
and becomes a full time crew member
with all that goes along with that. I think my husband is relieved to have someone else to count on and I am happy she is coming along since I was having ALOT of anxiety at the thought of leaving her on her own.
I was concerned that she would have a hard time without being able to socialize with kids
(teens) her age but I seem more worried about it than she is. She has always been a very mature kid so hopefully she will be able interact and make friends with some of the older people out there cruising.
With our eye on leaving in October we are all looking forward to the adventure.
