That's right, they've left home and you won't see them until Thanksgiving!
It had to happen sooner or later. Pushing them out of the nest was your duty as a parent, but, guess what...it's still OK to miss them.
Were you expecting that call for advice?
And they have just the right stuff to make it. Here's the "if they can make it there, they can make it anywhere" checklist ---
Good Upbringing [this will get them through the first day...and every day for the rest of their lives].
Family Values [good for that first interview, and every friendship and relationship they'll have...for the rest of their lives].
Education [just can't get enough of that funky stuff].
Common Sense [which comes in handy when gut feel just don't feel right].
So what's next? Grandchildren you say?
Better get that Mickey Nightlight and Cabbage Patch Lamp out of the dumpster!
And I hear you can build a darn good guest bedroom with Legos...
