Another life lesson I learned when I took Tucker out for college orientation was more of a lesson for me.  We were all in a big banquet room together and then they asked the students to go to another room and leave us there.  I felt right then and there like yelling "Don't go!...my baby please don't go!!!"   What was I thinking?  Do I really want my child living with me forever?  Surely he has been leaving me for some time already...gradually pulling away.  When they came back Tucker was just fine and more excited than ever about going to college.  Another life lesson, don't let them see you cry when they leave...wait until they leave the room.  Remember you don't want to do their laundry forever.  Maybe you do...I don't.
