When your child goes off to university your house grows quieter. You ache at night when you set the table and there is one less place... staring at the empty space it fills with memories of left over yesterdays leaving you hungry for more.
How did that little girl grow up so fast?
When your child goes off to university and comes home for a visit, she will bake a thousand cookies. You will taste her new ideas and savor her new experiences, wanting to hear more...
...until she unloads all her dirty laundry, piles and piles of it upon your floor.
Oh darling I love you but I do not miss the loads of laundry. I wonder if there is a Laundromat near the school?
