Sending a child off to college might be one of the most heart-wrenching experiences ever for a parent. Luckily I have at least a decade before I sent my oldest off. It’s a different story though for my children’s sitter. She has a daughter who is a freshman in college.
Sending her off to college in Boston last fall was tough, but I know it was even tougher the first time her daughter called her and told her she wasn’t feeling well. It took every ounce of her being not race immediately to her school and nurse her baby back to health! It’s in a mother’s nature to take care of our kids, but at some point, we have to let go and let them take care of themselves.
So to help my sitter’s daughter survive the cold and flu season, I thought I’d send her a winter care package. What college kid doesn’t love getting a care package? It’s a fun way for them to stay connected to family and friends who care about them back at home.
