Real You: Wal-Mart brings me to tears

Ok, here's the thing. As an entrepreneur who gets a chance to work from home on occaision, I've had a special opportunity this summer. My oldest son, who will be a freshman in college in the fall, decided to stay home this summer: eschewing camp for hanging out with his buddies here and just being home. Thus, we've been hanging out. And it's great. Until the Wal-Mart ads air. On the spot, a mom and daughter shop for dorm room supplies. At the end, the daughter runs and hugs her mom as she is walking away. I cry. I cry writing about it now. So, for all you mompreneurs out there with a freshly minted freshman-to-be, take heart. You aren't alone. That and enjoy your summer as it flies by!
