10 Priceless Texts Every Parent Will Send Their College Kid

LOL.

Whether you're the type of empty nester that gets weepy just walking by your child's now-vacated bedroom or the type who's on the town every night enjoying your newfound freedom, there's one thing all parents have in common -- you love and care for your kids now just as much as the day they were born. 

Here are 10 classic texts every empty nester will send at some point:

The one where you want to spoil them rotten...

The one that will make them love you even more...

The one where you're worried sick about them even though they're now adults...

The one where you seriously wonder if they can survive without you...

The one after you get your phone bill...

The one where you're trying to be a "cool mom"...

The one where you get the feeling they aren't doing as much studying as they say...

The one where they realize you know them better than anyone else...

The one that will make them want to move home again... 

The one where you wish they hadn't grown up so fast...
