In Which the Girl Becomes a Bowhead

Friday night, the girl attended a lock-in sleepover at the Kappa Delta house at UVa. When she returned, she was a bonafide sorority girl, complete with a bow adorning her perky ponytail.

We joked that the Kappa Delta girls just wanted to enslave a bunch of 6th graders for the weekend; that they needed servers for a party they were having or needed the sorority house cleaned, but no — turns out a bunch of nice college girls wanted to do something nice for a group of Girl Scouts.

So my kid who went off to UVa, very emo and nonconformist, returned morphed into a friendship bracelet-making future pledge.

I am the mother of a sorority girl.

  1. Oh my GAWD! I’m so PSYCHED!!!

    I shouldn’t joke since I once was a sorority girl myself.

  2. You know what… my days in the Gamma Phi Beta house at Iowa State were some of my best days ever. It’s okay, STL Working Mom, you both will survive!

    I’ll be first in line to write the girl a Kappa Delta rec when the time comes – and I think I’ll have to send her a “Future KD” t-shirt just to keep KD at the top of her list!

    Found your blog while searching for a spelling and obituary for a good college friend of mine, who I met through my college sorority. Don’t worry about the bow – she’ll do whatever she wants, anyway :). My parents were appalled at the idea of a greek daughter, till they met the house.
