I’m going to preface this post by saying my house is in chaos right now. I have to let things play out before talking about it. One thing, the giant 4th of July party at our house while we were at my FIL’s was a poor choice. Anyone need some beer pong balls? I keep finding them behind furniture.
I’ve talked to some Moms over the weekend and quite a few had a rough summer with their son before college. Come on university drop off day!
Anyway, I found some similar feelings at The Summer Before College (10 tips for moms)
I’ll be honest. At this moment I’m holding on by a thread. Thank goodness for a hubby that gets it and is mellow. Thank goodness I’ve mellowed out so much after my hysterectomy.
Anyway, the important part is we are not alone when our kids turn to shit after graduation.
Now’s where I should call my parents and apologize. I moved out in a huge fit 2 days after graduation. Damn paybacks are a bitch.
Do you remember how you were the summer after high school graduation? Any fun stories to share or should you call and apologize to your parents too?
Better yet, if you went through it with your kids, can you share your success story…even if you have to lie to me LOL
