Welcome home Bossy’s son!
Kris saysMay 16, 2009 at 10:39 am
And he didn’t even pack on those nasty “Freshman 15!” Have a good summer Bossy’s son!
Peg saysMay 16, 2009 at 11:22 am
He sure looks like an upperclassman! Congrats Bossy’s son.
Caleal saysMay 16, 2009 at 11:24 am
OMG! Way to go, Bossy’s son!
Also, Bossy’s son’s room back home is awesome. He must have died having to go into the jail cell dorms. I did. Arg.
joie saysMay 16, 2009 at 11:29 am
Awesome son, awesome room, and all because of an aswesome mom. Truly, I would have killed to have a mom like you — and those yellow Converse.
Annie saysMay 16, 2009 at 12:12 pm
I like the smile on Bossy’s daughter … not to mention her shoes!
Jackie Whitley saysMay 16, 2009 at 12:18 pm
Did all that fit in one vehicle ?
Is he able to store stuff on campus for next semester ?
chocolatechic saysMay 16, 2009 at 12:21 pm
Yeah…he’s come home.
Mine finishes his Freshman year in 3 weeks…only he never left the house. He is going to college in the next town over.
Little Miss Sunshine State saysMay 16, 2009 at 12:41 pm
yay Bossy’s Son for surviving Freshman Year. My daughter never came home for the summer. Job and 11 month on-campus apartment and summer semesters
Annie (commenter #6) read my mind. Look at Bossy’s Daughter wearing a big smile and some snazzy tap? shoes.
I was startled by the big blue owl glaring at Bossy while she snapped a self-portrait.
Ms. Cranky Pants saysMay 16, 2009 at 12:49 pm
welcome home bossy’s son! congrats on completing your first new york year.
and I LOVE bossy’s daughter’s gold taps! 😉
Cactus Petunia saysMay 16, 2009 at 12:52 pm
Bossy’s son looks all grown up!
And Bossy’s daughter looks mighty happy!
Kelly saysMay 16, 2009 at 12:55 pm
Isn’t that great?! Welcome home!!
Hokie Deb saysMay 16, 2009 at 1:19 pm
–>I think Bossy’s Poverty Party should cheers her good use of empty wine boxes to back up Bossy’s son.
BH saysMay 16, 2009 at 2:43 pm
It all fit in our tiny tiny little car that also carried 3 full size adults!
Welcome home, Sonny.
Shelley saysMay 16, 2009 at 3:49 pm
“And he didn’t even pack on those nasty “Freshman 15!”
Yeah..because that only happens to GIRLS! *grumble grumble*
Wow, that was fast, wasn’t it? Welcome home Bossy’s son. Have a great summer. I mean, get a job. Right, Bossy? 😉
Bossy's Daughter saysMay 16, 2009 at 5:37 pm
For everybody’s information, Those shoes are not taps!
Those are my new high heels that i got at Payless…
Aren’t they cute?
P.S. I would like it if they were taps, though…
Bossy's Daughter saysMay 16, 2009 at 5:38 pm
Oh- and they’re silver, not gold, Ms. Cranky Pants!
emilie-vt saysMay 16, 2009 at 5:38 pm

Welcome home, bossy’s son! And also, bossy, that’s a sweet picture in the middle there! You’re getting GOOD!
Jill saysMay 16, 2009 at 8:46 pm
Holy crapper, how did that go so fast? That pic of you and the car and the full length mirror is the best photo I’ve seen in awhile, anywhere. Can’t stop looking at it!
Teri saysMay 16, 2009 at 9:48 pm
My 5 year old has the same black and gray bedspread….in his room that is painted black (he’s 5 going on 15). I can’t even imagine him coming home from his 1st year of university.
Maria saysMay 16, 2009 at 10:03 pm
I’m sorry. Did I miss something? Did you NOT just get him set up in that dorm? Did he not just start school. Clearly I have been in a fugue state. And I”m not talking music.
Audubon Ron saysMay 16, 2009 at 10:17 pm
Bossy, not sure if you caught it, but in one pic there is some lady taking a pictures of the car. Wow, isn’t the weird? Why would anyone want to take pictures of the car? Huh?
martha saysMay 16, 2009 at 11:11 pm
ha! I thought that was his girlfriend on the bed! Sorry bossy’s daughter! geez your kids are growing up faster than mine.
Emily saysMay 16, 2009 at 11:28 pm

Bossy’s son has an awesome room!
Happily Employed Susan saysMay 16, 2009 at 11:31 pm
Have a happy summer, Bossy.
Chesapeake Bay Woman saysMay 16, 2009 at 11:35 pm
The shoes–and more importantly the daughter–are exceedingly cute.
ayerishgrl saysMay 17, 2009 at 12:15 am
Welcome home Bossy’s son-i hope the entire Bossy family has a great summer!
Carroll saysMay 17, 2009 at 12:23 am
Bossy’s Daughter, how can that POSSIBLY be you in those beautiful heels?! Yowza!! Next thing we know she’ll be telling us you too are heading off to college. Aieeeeeeeee!!!!
Welcome home, Bossy Boy!
zelzee saysMay 17, 2009 at 7:19 am
This was my absolute favorite time!!! Loved when they came back home………….
Finally………. life, noise, energy back in my home!!!!
Bossy's Daughter saysMay 17, 2009 at 11:03 am
I love the heels, too.
Philly saysMay 17, 2009 at 11:08 am
And just like that they are graduating.
My daughter just graduated from St. Joe’s yesterday,,,,went too fast!!
iheartikea saysMay 17, 2009 at 12:10 pm
ooh, you can play my favorite game “spot the ikea item” in picture number 3 … I spy 6!
It’s super easy to play this game at my house (and in Philly area restaurants, too!)
Rebekah saysMay 17, 2009 at 12:45 pm
That is one happy looking sister – glad to have her brother back for a few months, huh?
Lizzy saysMay 17, 2009 at 2:09 pm
Yay! The entire Bossy clan is back together again in their well decorated home looking extremely long-legged, cute and happy. May I join you? Would that make me have long legs, too?
surcie saysMay 17, 2009 at 2:39 pm
Dang, seems like he just left! (But probably not to Mom, right?)
bossy's friend martha's sis saysMay 17, 2009 at 6:31 pm
I just picked up my “daughter” from Cornell, it was so sweet to be able to do this when her mom and dad had things come up. It brought back tender memories and thoughts of true friendships. Welcome home bossy son!
Peace! ps bossy i am feeling REALLY good! REALLY!
swistle saysMay 17, 2009 at 7:29 pm
He CANNOT have completed a full year in ONE SINGLE MONTH, which is how long it’s been since you dropped him off.
dgm saysMay 17, 2009 at 8:05 pm
[Pressing the big read “easy” button]: “THAT was easy!”
MariaV saysMay 18, 2009 at 4:13 am
Bossy’s daughter’s smile says it all.
The Domestic Goddess saysMay 18, 2009 at 11:30 am
I love that his stuff is packed in WINE BOXES.
What is Bossy’s daughter wearing on her feet?
foolery saysMay 18, 2009 at 12:40 pm
He may as well have a wife and six kids and a mortgage and AARP because GAHHHHHH I have not been paying attention to the time! No way a school year has gone by. Enjoy these days, Bossy Family. : )
reen saysMay 18, 2009 at 2:57 pm
OMG, Bossy’s daughter’s sparkly shoes are killer! And that smile says it all. Happy reunited summer, Bossy’s family!
Reeb saysMay 18, 2009 at 7:18 pm
That first dorm-room photo brings to mind the post you did, oh about 2-3 weeks ago, showing it all barren like that as you were moving him in.
Need a link directly to the move-in stories. I remember the bit where Columbia firmly invites the parents to NOW LEAVE as they drop off their darlings.
Meg saysMay 19, 2009 at 8:08 am
Dollars to donuts, Bossy’s Son is the only one whose mom is super-cool enough to show up for the move wearing yellow high-top Chucks. 🙂
Me saysMay 19, 2009 at 9:02 am
My lord… it seems like he moved into that dorm yesterday! Did he even have time to unpack?
heyjoe saysMay 20, 2009 at 12:25 pm
that was a fast year.
Sparx saysMay 20, 2009 at 5:27 pm
Holy schmoly that was fast…
Courtney saysMay 21, 2009 at 5:20 pm
I’m noticing a lot of wine boxes for packing. Hummm…
