I have to say, I love emails and instant messenger and cell phones even more now. We've exchanged several emails, talked on IM a couple times, and had a nice, long phone call.
When I went to college, back in the dark ages, we had this thing called paper, and we used a pen or pencil to write down words, stuck them in an envelope, licked a stamp, and sent it home to let the parents know how we're doing. And once a week or so, a quick phone call home to check in.
Why is it that we only realize what we put our own parents through when we become parents ourselves? Every step of the way on this parenting journey, I've learned first-hand what my parents went through raising and launching us.
