Drama comes and goes very quickly to a 15 year old.
Oh, so true!
My favorite was the time my kid (who'd had a cough) called in the middle of the day to say the cough was getting worse, he felt really sick, and the school nurse wasn't helping. I went into super-protective mama bear mode and started making phone calls. Talked to the dorm head, made sure she knew what was going on, arranged for the kid to be excused from classes for a few days, told the coach the kid was going to have to miss practice . . . well, you get the picture. Then talked to the kid again that evening, and what did he say? "Mom, what are you talking about? I feel fine!"
He did take the next day off, though . . . ended up sleeping the entire day, and finally admitted that maybe, just maybe, he really wasn't as "fine" as he'd said!
