We’re in the countdown hours until Cait leaves for college. I’ve been trying to hold onto every moment.
Apparently, I haven’t been too subtle about it. While stopping at our favorite ice cream place as part of our end-of-summer rite, I was yet again asking my daughter where she was off to next and when she would be returning home.
She looked at me with a wistful smile and said, “Mom, you’re never going to be able to store up enough to fill the void, no matter how much time we spend together…”
Somebody just shoot me now please.
