You Know Your Kid Is In University When...

...your birthday card included in the flower delivery has this message in it:


BAHAHAHA! I laughed so hard when I saw that message. Really made my day.

Last week, the day after my birthday, my daughter sent me flowers:

There must have been an extra charge for the cat!
This cute teddy bear:


And a birthday card that had that funny message in it.
Hey, free shipping is free shipping and worth waiting an extra day for.

The interesting life of a university student. And the entertaining life of mom of a university student!

  1. How cute! Such pretty flowers and adorable little bear! Did we know that it was your birthday and did I wish you a happy birthday? If not, belated wishes. And if we did know and I did wish you a happy birthday; forgive the senior moment :)

    Have a good day!

    1. No senior moment for you, Betty! LOL... I didn't announce my birthday at all, so no one knew. Last year I did because I was turning 50 and it was a big milestone. But this year is just another number :)

    1. I have a feeling she'll be watching those pennies even more when her apartment lease begins :)

    1. You and me both, Christine! I'm glad she is resourceful like that. And she knows I would understand - and encourage! - that.

  10. And now you're get a slew of belated birthday messages from us: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Martha!
    Funny to see the cat behind the roses - but only because you mentioned it.
    Have a great week and year!

    1. HAHAHA...that is such a great way to put it: leveling up!
      And you are right, of course, it is a new personal record. And something to be very grateful for.

    1. It does. And I'm glad she's behaving that way. She has to be careful with money while she's in university!

  14. This reminds me of student days when we learned to live on the cheap...no credit cards!
