Oh, and incidently- I really liked the hug comment. I could definitely use more hugs around here.

Yoop,

Best to you and yours! None of life's transitions are easy, but you've given that gal all she needs to do well and more. Sit back and watch her fly!

hugs!!!

I remember my mom missing me a lot for the first few month when I left for college, she used to make me awesome dinners when I would come home, but by the end of the first year she would look at me and give me the look like what are you doing here again? Funny thing is I think our relationship became a whole lot better when I left, not that it was bad when I lived with my parents, but we acted more like old friends after a while. Yoop you'll be OK and if anything you'll be super proud of your daughters accomplishments in college.

Perhaps she could start by accepting the fact that a girl who hasn't changed her own sheets in 18 years probably doesn't need three color coordinating sets (with matching towels and shower caddy, oy).

These kids need to learn to pack!
It wasn't that long ago when I went off to college and packed everything into a 2door subcompact, including a stereo and computer.
My sisters went off to college with everything for both of them packed into a mini-van along with the whole family of 6.
Kids sure are different these days. And it hasn't been 2 decades yet since I started off to school.

Congratulations on getting the first one off to college Yoop. Mine starts school next year (kindergarten )

I guess I have a few years.

Craig

I cried like a baby all the way home from MIZZOU when we dropped off my oldest her first year.

Cried a little more when I walked past her emptied out room when we got home.

Cried the next evening when she was noticeable absent while we were watching some tv.

Cried for my youngest daughter (then 9 years old) who missed her oldest sister terribly.

It got easier and the adjustment seemed natural before too long. We were evolving into empty nesters.

Then one day later in the season I burst into uncontrollable crying...when I got the bill from the college.

Congrats Yoop on helping her to her next stage in life. I feel your pain.

Well atleast she is living on campus in order to complete college, much easier to focus that way. Otherwise you end up being 27 years old and a senior.

Well, she's only called three times since this morning. She got a cool Spanish text for Spanish 201, apparently, and wanted to read it to me.

She's on the third floor, so her dad (yes!- considering he didn't help with tuition or anything else) helped her carry all that crap, including my former fermentation fridge.

Thanks for all the encouraging words- it gave me enough strength to walk into her room and smile instead of cry. I just wish I had a few more years of her high school times- we really had a great ride.

Ah the kiddies grow up so fast, don't they? I've seen photos of your kids before, and it's creepy how they start to look more and more like you all the time. Times like these are tough, but you know it's for the best. Try as you might, you can't hold on to them forever. (((Hugs of encouragement))) She will be fine there, I promise.

OhioBrit, Yooper's son may not approve of her running around in the buff.
