I Hope She's a Happy Camper

Do you see my girl? Do you see the shirt she is wearing? Yes, that girl right down there in that picture. That girl decided yesterday that she was going to camp. Nothing like waiting to the last minute. This is how it went down...

Lil'Nanny: Mom, I want to go to camp tomorrow and I want you to come with me.

Big Nanny: I'm not going to camp.
(Been there, done that and got the t-shirt to prove it.)
You didn't want to go to camp. Remember?

Lil'Nanny: Well, I think I'm going to go to camp now.

Big Nanny: I don't think they have anymore space. I think it's too late. I don't know that they can fit you in now.

Lil'Nanny: Oh, yes, they still have room. I can go.
(She acts like she has some connections or something??? What's that about?)

Big Nanny: Who is talking you into this? Who put this idea in your head?

Lil'Nanny: Ms. Heather said I can go.

Big Nanny's reply to Ms. Heather: If she cries, she's yours, in your bed, in your room. Have fun! (And don't think that Ms. Heather is campin' in the world famous camp _____ metal bunk beds. She's got connections and stays in the lodge. So the Lil'Nanny might end up with some posh accommodations.)

And you see that baby up there. She can teach the Lil'Nanny a thing or two about campin'. She's on the 2008 tour De' camp. Last week it was Florida beach camp and this week it's off to camp in the country. And then she's off on a mission trip or two. She knows how to travel.

Oh, and look, this is her cabin counselor, Morgan. (Camp Counselor Jackpot!) Morgan used to be our neighbor and we go way back. She's in college now and we don't ever see her much anymore. Morgan and the Medium Nanny used to play baby dolls and Barbies every Saturday. She also has another great mommy counselor that we love. We went over all of the possible issues this morning.

And she's off.
Please don't place any wagers in the comments about what day I'm driving to Timbuktu to pick her up.

P.S. I'm thrilled that she's off to camp. I loved going to church camp as a child, and I really wanted her to go. I think she just needed someone to encourage/want her to go.
