Campus Profile: Moms

Mom’s weekend… we see the best of moms and the worst of moms, but in the end they still helped raise us to be the people we are today.

This is a shout out to all the moms:

You tucked us in at night after a full day of driving us around while we scream for (probably) no reason.

You allowed us to learn from own mistakes and eat all of the Halloween candy in one night because you knew it only takes one time to realize what a mistake that is. You told us that the pictures we drew you looked beautiful and hung them on the fridge even when they totally sucked.

You came in clutch when we didn’t want to hang out with our friends so you told us that “No, you can’t hang out right now.”

You looked on in panic as we got behind the wheel for the first time and took to the streets. You listened to us, wiped our tears, and equipped us with ice cream as we cried over our first heartbreaks. You have been there again and again. Thanks, Moms. You rock.
