A 'freshman' mom can sympathize

September 07, 2006

I swear, you must live in our house. "A Crash Course in Letting Go," [Man of the House, Aug. 31], hit me where my eyes tear.

I am one of those tough-love moms and I raised my first-born daughter to be savvy and strong. We sent her off to San Diego State University one week ago. I have already made one trip for those things she forgot. I am not ready to admit how many times I have called her, kicking myself when I do.

Who knew letting go would be so hard? One Mom on our street is having the four of us "freshman" moms over for "Kleenex and margaritas." My husband gets by with "texting" and my daughter groans at his messages.
