Jay starts back at college next week, he’ll be in his second year, which means he’s basically a pro at this now.
If you don’t count the 3am text messages I get asking me to wake him up … even if he’s over an hour away.
And let’s not even start on the fact I haven’t been sent the required book list to purchase yet.
But day one (and most days after this) will pretty much look like this:
The only thing I didn’t photograph here was his laptop. He’s a bare basics kind of kid.
This was our conversation for back-to-college shopping:
Me: “I’m picking up school stuff for the other kids, what do you need?”
Him: “Uh.” … “Pens.”
Me: “What kind of pens – red, blue, black, brand …”
Him: “Black Pilot G2 pens.”
Me: “What about paper, notebooks, planner, anything else?”
Him: no response.
Okay then, so I can only guess there are fancy plans to write on napkins, the back of his hand, borrow paper, or maybe he just needed new pens for home.
As he leaves in the morning I can already picture it, laptop in hand, phone in one pocket, pen in another pocket, gum in a third pocket, and his wallet in the fourth. And of course he’ll be juggling food and a coffee as he runs out the door.
And so off I went to Walmart, with a second list of required school supplies for the little ones, and Jay’s lengthy list of, pens. He knows though that he can count on me to just get whatever else he needs – like more hair gel, and of course multiple packs of gum, bottles of coffee and water, a new razor, and shower gel.
