Thank you. She seems to be over it already. Yesterday when I got the mail there was a padded envelope addressed to her. I could feel it was a bunch of trading pins (she has never traded before) and I just knew they were Disney pins. I tried to hide the envelope under a newspaper and some other things hoping she wouldn't see it but she did. I thought for sure it would put her in to full-on meltdown mode but it didn't. In fact, she was excited to see what she got (it was a bag of 50 that she bought off of ebay...and they actually seem to be authentic). She immediately dumped them on the counter and started going through them and pulling out the ones she liked and wanted to keep for herself. Then she talked about how she was going to start researching the individual pins to see if any of them are "rare". So that whole thing went better than I was expecting.I'm so very sorry to hear this We've been through this twice with the first app not being a terrible surprise but certainly disappointment. Second app was all out devastating. My dd laid in bed all day and cried (and she'd not a crier or emotional type) so that was hard to see. By the next morning, she (puffy eyes and all) was getting back to normal life. She was still sad for a long time but chin was up and she was only looking forward to the next round. It sounds like your dd is getting to that point quickly as well.
My dd met a girl last time she app'ed who also had been NLIC'ed (she's actually ahead of my dd - she's in her 4th app now) and they found out they live 20 mins from each other. This girl (surprise, surprise) does also still live at home. Anyways, they've become close buds and get together a lot. The two are going to WDW in October and I'm so worried they are going to get NLIC'ed before and it will really dampen their trip. It's a sad thought but I just hope, if they are going to get denied, it happens after their trip so they can really enjoy their time and dream about being on their CP's there together.
By next June, hopefully @bluezy, your dd has been accepted for her CP
And yes, hopefully she will be accepted for the Fall program by the time we're there in June...or NLIC'd long enough before we go that she's out of that funk before we arrive.
Hoping your daughter (and the others here) get WBI's soon!
