At college drop-off weepfest, remember these three words
Parenting doesn’t stop at Freshman Week.
All across the United States, people are weeping. They are sobbing, sputtering, sniveling and mewling because they are in the process of saying goodbye to their little baby boy or little baby girl who somehow has passed through the larval stage to emerge suddenly as this new creature called a college freshman.
My Comments: My day is coming and I would be lying if I didn’t say I dread it. As much as I want my boy to go out in the world and thrive, I know I will miss him greatly. As I write this, today is the first day of his senior year in high school. A year from now he will likely be off to come college. I get reflective even now as I think about it.
