My last son went to college last Saturday! After raising 5 sons, my husband and I of 35 years, came home and sat down and just relaxed. We did not fix a dinner for us, he had a PBJ sandwich and ice cream, and I had a salad with a glass of wine. What a great feeling. And you want to know what else, we DID NOT go to the parents meeting at the college. We have heard from our son just once, yesterday when I texted him about how his first day was. I know that some people will think that I am a bad Mom for not going to the meeting, for not calling him or texting him about what to do, or even to see how he was feeling about college. I know that he is going to be fine, in his text he said that he has met a lot of people, and is thinking about getting a job on campus so he is not so bored, he likes to be busy. So I think we did a great job raising him to leave home, no matter what some of my friends have said. So I am dancing around the house and loving it!
