Jayden moved out of home over the summer. I was heartbroken, but he had always told me that when he started college he wanted to move out, and so he moved in with one of his best friends.
This is something that we simply don't do in Australia. I don't know anybody who left home to live in a dorm, or with friends. You simply lived at home and commuted to the closest University that offered the classes you were interested in. I'm probably showing my age right now, aren't I, or maybe this was just where I grew up?
It's his birthday next week (he'll be turning 19), and Christmas is just around the corner, so it's important for me to come up with gift ideas that he'll love but that are also functional now that he's living away from home and a full time college student.
Here are some things I think he would love ... okay, maybe the cushion is just something I would love.
