You are a freaking rock star mom. You're my hero.

Smalltown Mom

You are one tough mom. I love you!


You go, girl! College is all about building character!

Prof. J.

You go, Mom!


I'm glad to hear there are other tough moms out there. Build that character!


Sometimes you accomplish so much more by NOT using the word "no" - as you obviously have realised long time ago.
You rock!


I'm taking notes here.


100= a lot of pizza!

Manic Mommy

I can not imagine the parent/child conversations in 12 years...

Busy Bee Suz

I love it. Very smart move on both sides.


What? You aren't making him share a tiny dorm room with only a desk, small bed, and a closet, with a stranger? Now THAT is character building!

Little Miss Sunshine State

Sorority Girl is moving in August to an apartment that is $100 MORE per month but much closer to campus.

She can go make lunch at home and not spend as much on gas. After 3 years of emotionally unstable suitemates and fellow apartment dwellers, we decided she deserved to spend her last year living with 2 good friends.


That is a conversation you would hear at my house!


This brings back memories of helping to carry tons (and tons) of boxes up countless number of steps each time one of my kids moved in college! (every year)

green girl

Your tough love inspires me! Brilliantly played, Madam!


Quick thinking on your feet!


That's right!

phd in yogurtry

That's right. Hold your ground! I bet the other parents are grateful too!

Note to MVP: high-speed Internet and cable? not a selling point with moms.


I think we were seperated at birth. Precious Oldest will be an RA next year - love it!


You did so good with your kids!


The laundrymat in our town has free WiFi, perfect for college kids.


I love it! You go!
