I say that with very mixed emotions. I have twin 17 year old daughters and both of them have been looking into colleges lately, more this past week than ever. I am not ready for them to go off to college. They are my babies and I’m not ready for them to grow up much less go off to college. I
When my son went off to college I was ok with it. My wife, however, was not. Although the school is not but 45 miles away he was not coming home but a few weekends out of the year. My son and I had spent a lot of time together camping and doing other activities with the scouts so I I figured I’d have problems with him going away.
I’ts going to be different with me with my girls. We don’t do a lot of things together because dad isn’t cool. We don’t have anything in common and we don’t watch the same television shows. It kind of reminds me of the commonality of my wife and I. Anyway, when they go off to school they will be missed a lot. I’m not sure how I’m going to handle it. Just going to take it one day at a time.
