Until we drop our girl off at college – but whose counting? Oh yeah. I am. Every day.
I’m assuming every parent in all of time has had this exact same feeling. It’s a mixture of sheer excitement for the things she’ll be doing and people she’ll be meeting, and sheer terror for the things she’ll be doing and the people she’ll be meeting. Let’s face it, she can learn everything she needs to know on the Internet and more importantly – people are horrible. Just kidding….ahem.
Plus…how is this little munchin supposed to go to college?
You’d think we would be spending every second with her before she leaves but that’s not exactly how it’s working. Because that’s just what she’s doing – she’s working. A lot. And then there’s her very full dance card. You’ll be shocked to hear this but a 17yr old would much rather do nothing with a friend then something with her mother! Outrageous right?
I know this isn’t about me. But I’m so sad for me!!! Aren’t you sad for me too?
Ok ok. Let’s focus on the positive! Parents weekend is in October.
