I take this opportunity to submit my interpretation of the many “What to expect on college move in day” articles I’ve read –
Drink plenty of water. It will be hot.
There may be tears as your daughter adjusts to living away from home. It will rain.
Get plenty of rest. You will strain your back.
Have the “hook-up” talk with your daughter before move in day. Guys will be checking out your daughter before you’ve even unloaded the car.
Be open minded. You will see students carrying televisions to their dorm rooms that are much nicer than yours and you will envy them and their youthful sense of entitlement.
Don’t forget the cleaning supplies. The shower might smell gross.
