A high school freshman has just told me she is pregnant. She is "super excited". She is already making plans and wants to be on Homebound instruction for the entire first quarter next year. She is constantly making comments like "You think I am big now, wait about six months." Personally, I think it is really sad. Her mom is an, umm, exotic performer and really has nothing to do with her. She lives with her grandparents (late 70s) and they have pretty much raised her since her dad just has no idea what to do with a girl. I think she has it in her mind that Grandma and Grandpa will be raising this one like they raised her and her life isn't going to change that much. We already have a four day trip to Indiana planned for next fall and she wants to go. Ummm, we don't offer child care on field trips.
