I Cant hear you, Nah Nah Nah Nah Nah Nah

So you raise them the best you can. You try to teach them to make good decisions. Then they go away to college. I think last years Freshman focus taught them that parents are stupid. Ok, maybe thats just natural.

My daughter goes to college on the coast of NC.

Me, You coming home?

Her, Why?

Me, Theres a hurricane coming.

Her, Yeah?

Me, It's big.

Her, Yeah?

Me, You need to come home.

Her, Why?

Me, Cause I dont want your car getting flooded.

Her, We are parking it in the parking deck and we are going to ride it out in my apartment on the 3rd floor.

Me, You need to come home.

Her, Why?

Me, I give up. Stay inside and in touch.

I guess women and men of all ages have a tough time communicating, huh?

I just love you Mr. Suthern

Kids think they know best. But she'll probably follow your instructions the next time a hurricane blows into town. There's nothing like experiencing something not so fun, to make you NOT want to do it again.

Once she goes through her first hurricane without her Daddy, she'll come running home.

We're hunkered down here as well.


While I wouldn't want them anywhere else riding out the storm, the kids are driving me crazy.

Good time to invest in a raft?

Hope she's safe.

Sounds like my oldest daughter with all her back talk and thinkin' she knows best. *sigh* All we can do is love them and pray. I do A LOT of praying. :)

Hope she's safe.
