12 year old girls

that's who my charges will be: 12 year old girls. some 13s. to give you some frame of reference, not a single one was born in the 80s. this is amazing to me.

on the other hand, everything's going well so far. the other RAs are cool. this afternoon i had to role-play a situation wherein one of my campers intentionally peed on her roommate's bed. i was a little uncertain at first, but the consensus was that i handled the situation like a pro ("you have to communicate with words, not urine").

i am now braced for that exact situation. maybe i'll warn my campers about it at our first meeting: pee is a bodily execretion -- not a tool.

they arrive on sunday. wish me luck.
