When J left for his first year of college last year I hadn’t planned on seeing him until Thanksgiving of that year. Except he got a bit homesick and came for a quick visit in September, and then again to celebrate A’s 1st birthday in October. Each time we flew him home, even if it was for just for quick weekend visit. Not exactly what we thought when trying to figure out how to bring the comforts of home to college for him.
In just a few short weeks J-bird is starting college. He will be bunking with three other students and sharing a bathroom with another trio. Dorm life isn’t easy, but I’ve heard it’s lots of fun. There is so much he will be doing, and that includes his own laundry. I’ve prepped him for things like cooking and laundry over the last couple of years.
