Haiku Friday: the "EEEK -- MY DAUGHTER IS A HIGH SCHOOL CHEERLEADER" edition

Haiku Friday

Roo-girl rocked the house.
She made it onto the squad --
Broken arm and all.

Whooohooo!

Oh, and somebody please hold me. My little girl is now a high school cheerleader.

Well, she will be as soon as practice starts.

Which will be pretty soon. There's a parent meeting in a week or so, and then: LAUNCH.

I'm very proud -- and not just a little nervous. Those will be BIGGER girls who will be tossing my baby a zillion miles into the air.

Speaking of proud and nervous, as the week of Passover begins to draw to a close, I leave you with this little extra haiku'ishness:

After three days, I
dropped the kids off at the pool.
Fruit compote does work.

Yes, my mother is very proud. Why do you ask?

So glad you finally let the kids go for a swim. All kids deserve to swim, you know.

OH! I forgot to ask. Was it a public pool? No?

Janet said...

Way to go Roo-Girl!
I imagine the Queen will be one of the tossers if she chooses to go that route. I was always on the bottom of the pyramid. (We were not allowed to do flips at our school because someone might see our legs - I'll post a picture of our uniforms sometime when I'm feeling particularly self-deprecating.)
Oh, and congrats on the other too. It took me a minute.
