My older daughter received her first college acceptance letter yesterday, and I’m struck with a combination of feelings; excitement for her,

overwhelming pride, and gob smacked astonishment that I’m going to be the parent of a college kid. Any reasonable person would assume that after writing and drawing about teenagers as long as I have, this would not be my first rodeo. Yet here I sit in the bucking chute with my heart in my throat and flop sweat dripping down into my boots. Hang in there with me. This is going to be an exciting ride.
