Boo Box

For all you parents that decided to order the Boo Box today it's your last chance to get it there by Halloween using priority mail, and crossing your fingers and toes that your college has a good mail delivery system.  Might help to cast some spells in that direction too :)

The most wonderful time of the year...until they leave for college

Parents eagerly await their kids heading back to school, and the entire family getting back into a comfortable routine.  Until their child turns 18 and heads off to college.  That happened to me this year and has inspired a new line of College Care Packages.

While we are excited for their journey ahead as parents we can't help but feel the loss.  The day to day interaction with the child we've been raising for 18 years is suddenly gone.  So the care package isn't so much for my student as for me.  It lets me be a small part of his life for just a little longer, and I like that.

If you want to read an amazing description of the experience of sending your child off to school click on over to this excerpt from Rob Lowe's book Love Life.   It's a tear jerker, but he expresses so beautifully what it's like to release one of your own out into the world.
