The Joys of Parenting?
My youngest daughter's boyfriend left on Sunday to go down on campus at Purdue. She goes to school up here at Purdue North Central. She wants to go visit him this weekend. I think you all know what the weather is like now in Northwest Indiana. The temperature right now is 3 below zero. Who knows what the wind chill is. I just know it hurts to breath in when you go outside. They are saying more snow tonight. She would be traveling alone. My husband and I think this is a very bad idea. She says we are being overprotective and don't trust her. I don't trust the weather. I totally understand that she misses him and wants to see him. But really, he has only been gone five days. I don't object to her going to see him. Can't we just wait till the weather breaks a little? Isn't it my job as her mother to keep her safe, no matter how old she is? Am I wrong??????? Please tell me I'm not.
