Camp jitters...

Not me mind you. Sha-Sha (9 yr old) is ready to go, third year and all. Ni-Ni (7 yr old) has talked about nothing else for 6 months. But last night on the eve of camp I think she started to get nervous. What was the first sign?

- "Mommy I don't want you to cry when I leave....maybe I shouldn't go...."

or could it be...

- "Mommy I don't want to stay in a cabin without a lock"....(you can tell we are city dwellers). When I explained all the reasons locks weren't necessary - her response was "what about bears coming in?" I calmly informed her that bears can't open doors as Sha-Sha says "yeah - the doors open out, not in!"

I exit room and laugh hysterically.
