Five Weeks and Counting

Tristan comes home from college in five weeks. Yay! I cannot wait. It seems like forever since I saw him, and I worry so. I worry more now that he is out of the house than when I did when he was little at home.

so true. My son is 21 and my nephew is 17. Both are in college and I worry everyday.

I wonder if it's a boy thing? It just seems to me that my boys are so much more willing to do things that may get them in trouble, than my girl. Maybe it's just because the girl is more secretive about it? I've noticed that with her. She is a lot less willing to share her life with me than the boys.

I can't understand girls...I don't remember having girl issues when I was growing up, lol. Maybe because we are female and we know how it is in the big bad world, we are harder on the girls than the boys and they resent that. that's when they start refusing to talk and share things. Did you read my post on aloof girl?

I think you're right about the girl thing. I'm not harder on her on purpose, but I suppose I probably am. I didn't read your post on aloof girl. Where can I find that? I'd like to read it! :)

here is my story on aloof girl. Is it okay that I posted the link?

That's perfectly fine that you posted your link. I enjoyed reading your story and can so relate. I don't think it matters if you're the parent or the aunt, kids that age resent any kind of parental control, no matter where it comes from. In time, she will realize that you are only looking out for her because you love her. Unfortunately, it usually comes much later; after they are grown. Kids that age, boy or girl, are selfish and don't understand the things we do for them are only done because we care. It's a tough period to get through, but it does get better.....eventually. LOL
