So this baby girl of mine…
Became this big girl of mine…
And she will soon be leaving for college. College.
The University of Maryland-Eastern Shore.
Away from home and from Mommy & Family for the very first time ever.
Am I worried? Nah…I’m not worried. Devastated because my baby is all growed-up?
Tee is leaving for college on 8/22. She got her dorm assignment today via email, with a roommate and all. We got to do a virtual tour of the dorm on the UMES website too. We finally completed her college wish list today. This whole thing is becoming more and more real to us everyday. I mean, I still think I look way too youthful to be the mom of a college kid. But I digress…
Most of my blog readers/followers/Facebook friends have been following me for a number of years and have virtually watched my daughter grow up from an awkward ‘tween to a poised and mature young woman, or somewhere in between. Especially my folks who have been with me since my days blogging on MySpace. Even folks whom we’ve never met yet revel in the stories of Tee’s [mis]adventures and precocious random quotations. The connections & far away love have been awesome and have brought some wonderful people into our lives. People who have been supportive and encouraging through everything. Thank you.
If you can or would like to, click the link and send her a little something to make life away from home for the first time a little more productive and comfy. I’ll be sure that she sends a thank you note!
Thanks in advance!
