Lauren is currentlly upstairs in her bed crying that she doesn't want to go to college. She doesn't want to leave her family because we will miss her so much. Goodness kid, you are 7!
I just told her about colleges she could go to and still live at home. She's now excited that she could be a Buckeye.
I also told her that this is her home and she doesn't ever have to leave. There will always be a spot for her in our home and house.
We've decided to live our life and assume Lauren will never be capable of living independently.
But on the other hand we're hoping that she will.
