So my baby is officially gone. Last night was her first night in her dorm 1100 miles away and I spent the whole night with tears in my eyes and anxiety tight in my chest. All the excitement I had felt for the past few months flew out the window and was replaced with an overwhelming level of sadness, nervousness and fear. It shocked me because that has never been me as a Mom.
Before she left for BYU, we threw her a fun early-graduation party with family, friends and teachers. What a perfect way to send someone off to college: surrounded by all those who had a hand in helping you get there!
I had never heard of a walking taco until I went to my first PTA meeting here and was put in charge of them for the carnival. I explained I was more than happy to help, but first they would have to explain to me what the heck one was! They thought I was joking. Really.
