Wow! I don't know where my daughter gets her energy but she has been going and going like the Energizer bunny. She had 5 soccer games last week, worked 3 shifts at her job, spent time with her boyfriend, all while trying to get everything ready for prom. Thank goodness the college stuff is done for us. She got a full paid 4 year scholarship to a private college because of her grades. We are so proud of her and her accomplishments.
Wish I could put some of that drive into my son. He's a very smart, easy going freshman who just skates by barely. I'm sure he will accomplish a whole lot in life but he'll do it at his own pace. My friends all tell me it's second child syndrome but I think it's genetics. My father was called 3 day Bob because he was a slow, meticulous worker and my brother-in-law is blessed with that same turtle like pace so I guess my son comes by it naturally!
No matter at what pace my kids work, Energizer bunny or turtle, they are both great kids.
