Dropped dd off at college!!
Sun, 08-19-2012 - 1:33pm

Dd is a freshman this year in college, and we dropped her off on Thursday.  She was a mess for days, to the point where I actually had to tell her to put her big girl panties on and get to work.  She had a great room, a suite for 4 with only 2 girls in it for now!!  She is loving it now that she is there.  Daddy had a harder time with this, me, I was fine.  I was a mess with Kindergarden.  This was not so bad. We loved her roommate.  She called a few times and is a great mood and gets along great with her roommate.  She called this morning on her way to church, going on about all her new friends!!

Yay!!!  Sounds like a great start!  Sometimes anxiety and change gets the worst of the kids.  Making them face it like an adult is a great lifelong lesson on dealing with changes!   Great job mom!  (I know a few people who need to put on their big girl panties!!  LOL!!)  Enjoy your bit of extra time that you have with one less child at home!
