Our youngest son, 19 yo, has decided to move out. He lived at home his first year of college but has decided so many of his friends live on campus or apts. that he wants to give it a try.
He works full time during the summer and almost full time during the school year. I just hope he isn't taking on more than he can handle right now.He's been paying his own car payment/ins for over 2 years,has good credit, and is responsible. But with the economy and having 2 room mates(3 bachelors...poor apt.! LOL) sharing expenses he will learn much more about being an adult.
I know from experince they have to learn on their own, most kids come home once before really making it on their own, and that life teaches you lessons.
He's always been self sufficient and busy, not home a lot. He won't be too far from home, school,and work so I'm sure he'll be home for dinner as often as he says he will! LOL! I'm sure he'll bring laundry home to do too. But he is my baby and I will miss him saying, "Bye, I love you" when he leaves for school or work in the AM, talking at night when he gets in, doing little things for us, esp. things I can't do, just knowing he was around when/if we needed him. He'll just be a call away. I need to get use to the fact he just won't be here. Every young one must fly away sooner or later! But I expected him to be later....
