Siegelife Posted September 8, 2006 Report Share Posted September 8, 2006 So, the first week of school. What a crazy week it was to be! DD was a new middle schooler, dance classes would be starting again and Nut auditions are this weekend. Tues was the first day of school. I left work early to pick up my DD for her first day back to class and she wasn't ready like she is always. She said she wasn't going and something about soccer etc. The recruiters at school were out in full force, apparently, the first day of school. So, she has decided not to dance. No Nut or anything. Ok, I sort of expected something like this with all of the new drama and opportunities that she will be facing in middle school, just not the first day of school! She also has a Cinderella production to do at the end of Oct which she has already been cast for. She will fullfill her obligation if the school can't replace her. I started my first ballet class, as part of my fitness program yesterday and she has an attitude like she doesn't even care. Everyone at the school is in shock that she is not there, but all said to say hi to her. When I did she thought of it as no big deal. (These are all people she loves!) So, I'm just wondering.....has anyone else gone through this extreme personality turn around for their DK in middle school? This was just over night, literally! I told her that her decision was fine since she wanted to spread her wings a little in other things and to let me know in Jan if she would like to return next semester. I'm just hoping that it is another eduational area or sport that she wants to venture towards and not the wrong, unsupportive crowd of kids or boys. HELP!!! Quote Link to comment
