Our oldest son returned to college today after coming home at Thanksgiving. It was lovely to have the family together for 2.5 months during the COVID resurgence. He is a fine young man—kind, caring, responsible— and I know everything will be OK. Understandably, a young man does not want to be experiencing college from his childhood bedroom. But as a mother I can’t help but worry about sending him out of our family bubble and into a pandemic uncertainty.
Stay safe everyone.
