Lots of Teen Screaming
Think I may be a bit of a nervous wreck this weekend. My oldest has got the chance to go to London and attend the Teen Awards held by Radio 1. She excitedly came home earlier this week and asked if she could go and then proceeded to run off all the names that would be playing. Now at that point if I was at all with it I would have managed more enthusiasm but alas I am not with it and at most of the names I did slightly glass over. But her bouncing up and down and new octave voice level indicate they are good. Call to the other parents made, me happy with all the arrangements and it was agreed she could go.
Can I just pause a second as I hyperventilate at the thought of my child ( yes yes I know she’s 16) going to London without me. Now I know I shouldn’t be worrying at all as it’s a friend’s mum taking them up and bringing them back. And the whole thing is arranged for children of her age in mind. It’s not like she suddenly wanted to see something completely random and came home and said she had alanis morissette tickets , nothing wrong with Alanis it’s just not what she is into at the moment. That would just result in one big argument about having to sell tickets.
She will of course be safe and ecstatically happy, even the news that she will be at getting up at 4 in the morning. I will do enough worrying for everyone but in the meantime I guess I best look up some of these chaps who she will be seeing so that I have some home of keeping up with the hundreds of photos she no doubt will be taking. And not forgetting what it’s all about and that’s the teens who have been nominated for doing brilliant things.
