Tuesday Text: Parentexting™

It's exam time again.
Mama offers encouragement and advice to her babes:
My son knows what he doesn't want to be.
And The Bird:
I am so glad it's them and not me this exam season...
So I guess it's safe to say I'm low on both estrogen and empathy...
But they'll be home in two sleeps!
I cannot wait♥♥♥

Exams are so stressful, I know they can't wait to be home with you!

Finals...as you said, I'm so glad those days are behind us. I remember popping "No-Doze" pills like candy, pulling all-nighters before the big exams, and then crawling back to the sorority house to crash.

My college kid is home Friday - so I share your excitement! (Altho - he called me Sunday morning to tell me he had broken his nose...NOT a phone call any Mom wants to get from their college kid!)

Diane said...

What good kids! You must be so proud!

Praying for them and you....exam time is hard. Hope they both get home safely!!!

It doesn't surprise me that he doesn't want to be a priest, he is too cute and all, but the attorney...yep, bet he looks awesome in a law library.

Just sayin', Gah.

Yay! I remember those days for my son when he was at UVa. Good times.

Hilary said...

Ah I know that feeling. My older son had ME nervous with an exam he had to take on Friday (in his air traffic control course)... one which he needed a 95% to pass! I was more stressed about it than he was. He passed with a 99.54%. He'll be home on Saturday.. can't wait. Enjoy your kids.. I know you will. :)

"Two sleeps" is so cute! And those texts made me anxious...I DON'T miss college.

Kacey said...

Ah, my youngest just finished up. I think he might sleep for 3 or 4 days now.

Grandmother said...

Oh, those college days, great fun, but exam time, high stress! Enjoy your together time like crazy. It gets more and more precious.
"How many sleeps?" was how my daughter kept time too.
