So today, I was having a conversation with two of my nieces. One is going to be 18 and is getting ready to head to college in the fall and the other is going to be 17 and is gearing up for her senior year.
Our conversation started of with us discussing which school she was going to pick and for her to start preparing her list for her college dorm. In the same instance the second one was putting her 2 cents in of things that she thinks her sister should get. The conversation then moved on to whether she thinks that she will come back home after she graduates. The one thing that they both agreed on is that they probably would not come back home. Of course, I had to ensure that they would at least visit me every once in a while. It was an interesting conversation because I was able to get both takes on where they would want to move and settle to. As well as who they hold important in their heart to come back and see. It was also a great bonding moment for us both as they are adults and there may be things that they don’t want to discuss with their parents. So, to help start that flow of conversation for them to be able to come to me and talk to me about whatever is going on in their lives is always good.
