This Week’s Buzz: August 31st – September 6th

ear Mom (a guest blog from college) 

It was our first day of Kindergarten and you worried we wouldn’t fit in. Then we were off to our first dance, and you worried you didn’t warn us not to kiss boys. When we left for our first high school party, you weren’t sure if you told us enough times never to get in the car with a drunk driver. And the first time our heart was broken, you worried you didn’t prepare us for it.

As your children get older, you think that it might be easier to let go. But moms everywhere realize this is not the case. Once we go off to college, move out of the house, and begin to start living in a world where you aren’t as prevalent in it, it can be almost impossible for you to take your mind off of us.

MOM, Please Don’t…

I am threatening to walk into my kid's school cafeterias and point out all of the horrible choices that tempt our kids every day. I KNOW there is fruit, but it is right next to the oreos. I KNOW milk and water are available but the high fructose sugar drink is right there calling my child's name!! What kid can resist? I hate making lunches for school. It is right up there with hair cuts as on of my least favorite parental duties. I have tried to make lunches the night before but who wants a mushy 18 hour old sandwich?
