University of Michigan - taken last December when I attended my sister's senior recital
ED: In the following Momversation video = I meant 529 (college savings plan) not 509. I know, you guys. I know. Don't even...
Lately, I've been a bit of an absent-minded non-professor.
Exhibit B: The other night I used Fable's "I like to clean the bathroom floor with this" toothbrush instead of mine. And then Hal was like, "BEC, NOOOOO!!!!" And then he knocked the toothbrush out of my hand like a slow-motion sequence and it went flying into the toilet. Womp.
Exhibit C: I have consistently and pre-maturely packed every necessity we have, specifically toiletries. Not two-minutes after I packed my tampons? I started my period. Double-womp. Same thing with the band-aids and skinned-knees. Triple-dog-womp. Same thing with my brain, emotional equilibrium, short-term memory and ability to multitask. Quadruple-axle womp.
Also, I look like I'm pooping in the still below. Again. Thank you, Momversation!
Do you have a
509 529 savings plan in place for your kids? Will you push your babes toward college? This is one of those topics where Hal and I differ - I think college is totally case-by-case appropriate. I know plenty of self-made college-dropouts who are kicking ass in their various fields without attending a university. On the other hand, I'm the daughter of a Physicist. Clearly he needed a PHD to invent things and save the world.
I digress. I happen to share parenting duties with a man who thinks college is mandatory ANDTHAT'SFINALTHEEND! College was where Hal found himself. Of course he lost himself two years later, but then? He found himself again! Team!
I get where Hal's coming from. I do. I just get where I'm coming from, too. #switzerlandish.
Question, then: Are you saving for your kid(s)' college education(s)? Will you pressure your sons and/or daughters to go to university? Why or why not?
P (apropos) S: Congratulations to my sister, Rachel who graduates from the University of Michigan this weekend with a BM (Bachelor of Music) in Flute Performance.
So proud of you, I am. Couldn't be more excited to watch you
followlead your dreams. Life is all yours, Roo. Go, baby, go.
