Light seeps under the dorm room door. It’s past midnight. Your first born’s stomach mews pathetically for food. The tiny rented refrigerator is empty. Without warning, whitewashed recollections of home and family overwhelm your child. He reaches for his phone to call you.
“Maaaaaaa!” he wails, “Come get me now!”
My worst nightmare and it never happened. In fact, we rarely heard from any of our kids when they were at college but I imagined that they would miss me constantly. Help assuage these nagging feelings by sending your new college kid a care package!
Not surprisingly, Mirth in a Box has created a care package with the new student in mind. We’ve included plenty of easy meals and snacks as well as a really nifty microwavable, BPA free ramen noodle bowl. Check out the clip on, vented lid! There’s also a mini first aid kit, reusable cold pack, stain wipes, Frisbee-esque flying disc, deck of playing cards, a credit-card sized classic survival tool and a stress wiener!
Worry no more! Send a care package to your beloved student and sleep soundly through the night!
Mirth in a Box also has care packages for boarding school students, sick friends, or summer campers (next year!). Don’t forget us during the holidays! We got plenty of small gifts that can fit nicely in to stockings!
