Amanda H. Allen, Esq.

That was the entire text of a message I received from my daughter late this afternoon.

Congratulations to her.


If you can't read between that one line, let me explain as I kvell.

Having been in school (including day-care and two semesters teaching middle school)for 24 years, she is now licensed to practice law in Maryland and the District of Columbia.

After three months of waiting for the results of the bar exam, she is now eligible to look for a permanent job in the law and required to start re-paying someone named Sallie Mae gazillions of dollars in loans.

And I? I will happily, singing and dancing, help her move.

    Congratulations! I know she's happy, and you are (quite rightly) proud!
