We met with Grace’s coach today and told him. I had rehearsed the speech many times in my head. I had a bunch of things planned to say. They all came out at once. I was petrified he would be mad.
He wasn’t. He was so kind. He was sad to see her go but also felt that we made a really solid decision for her. He completely understood and most importantly told her the door was always open should she want to come back. The discussion was frank and honest. I should be so relieved. I came home and cried instead.
In the end, I am grateful that it was that painful. My kids are so fortunate to have such amazing coaches. It’s a good problem to have.
