I still find adulting hard. I'm nearly 46 and left my parents' house to get married at 23.5. So, yeah, currently I've still spent more years under my parents' roof than under my own, this will only change sometime next year. Wow. I'd never thought about that.

Sigh... I hope your son has a good time in NYC. I'm not ready for mine to move out just yet (and oldest is considering going to college locally, we'll see about that! Maybe not good for him... but that was my own experience, so, well, I guess I'm biased). OTOH, my husband left home at 13.5 to go to boarding academy -- a full TEN YEARS before I did. He lived with his family briefly again during his first two years of college (so that would make him "win" only by 8 years). Anyway... yeah... he's certainly more in favor of the kids going away. His brothers (who also left at 14-15) tease me endlessly about whining about being away from my son for two weeks! LOL

It is SO weird to be responsible for your own house! I am with him there.

So, uh, he didn't mean that you guys aren't smart, right, with the "it's nice to live with other smart people."

I do not understand being able to go without food for an entire day. I just ... nope. In fact, I am starving right now.

This was so awesome. I can see mine having similar answers, especially "I can do what I want when I want and no one can tell me to stop." I've tried to explain that no, I can't do whatever I want whenever I want because then they won't eat or live in a clean house, but they are not grokking that.

Agree with so much of this! I HATE being in charge of my own food. I can't skip meals but cereal is my favorite thing even and totally counts as a meal for me.
