In Eight Days!!!!!
So, here I am now with lists of things to buy. She just came into my office and showed me the list of needed/recommended items the college sent and on it they have "stuffed animals". I think they know they are getting our "kids".
I have seen commercials where a daughter asks for the keys to the car and the dad sees the daughter as still a very young child.... There are days that in my mind's eye I see this......
But in reality, this is the little girl who is ready to set sail on this next adventure in her life.
We are in the midst of lots of dorm shopping. It's kind of fun, it really is. I will miss having her living under our roof full-time but my friends tell me that I may feel differently when she returns home for summer break with all of her stuff, she will come home a slightly different person. Life's all about adjustments. I will adjust when she leaves and I will adjust when she returns. Right now I am trying to savor all of the moments I can.... because she leaves in eight days.
