10 Priceless Texts You'll Get As The Parent Of A College Student

You may have thought that life as an empty nester would mean rarely hearing from your college kid. Wrong. You might actually be hearing from them more often -- because they now realize how much they need you. (Right?!)

Here are 10 classic texts you'll likely get from your kid away at school. 

The one where they forget they don't live at home anymore... 

The one where they've had a late-night pizza emergency...

The one where they realize you've changed the Netflix password...

The one where you tell them they're cut off... 

 The one where you know they're not studying...

 The one when they do (attempt) their first load of laundry...

 

 The one when you start to wonder how they've survived this long...

 The one where they need money for essentials... 

The one that actually makes you really proud...

The one where you realize they actually really miss you...
