Our daughter is home from college for the holidays. It’s interesting to see her perspective change on things after just a few short months at college. For example, we were contemplating what to do for dinner, and we suggested ordering pizza. Her boyfriend was at the house, and just the way the conversation played out, I didn’t make it clear that I would and paying for their pizza as well. Given the confusion, she asked who would be paying for it, because she was concerned about how much she had been spending on food lately. This is a concern she’s never expressed before. After stating we would supply her food while she’s at our home, she laughed and said, “Oh yeah, I’m living in luxury while at home! My parents give me food, and I get to use a new towel every day!” Apparently at school, where she has to do her own laundry, she reuses towels. But at home, where mom and dad do the laundry, it’s a new towel every day!
Fist pump for a new towel every day, and my favorite posts of the week!
