almost ready for college

Mrs. Baby Shamrock will be graduating from high school in just a week or two.

She's a fine young adult. Very studious.

Fluent in three languages.

Does a lot of community service.

This fall, she'll be headed to a large university, where she intends to study public policy.

Her father is so proud.

Maybe someday, she'll meet a nice young man and settle down and have babies of her own.

But we hope she finishes graduate school first.

We're about to become empty nesters here.

I won't know what to do with my time. Shall I take up knitting?

Maybe I'll learn to dye yarn or something. I've been wondering if I would be good at that.

Don't forget to call, Mrs. Baby! Or text. Or Snapchat. Or whatever you youngsters are doing these days.

I'll never stop wanting to nibble your cheeks!
