Ree Drummond Tearfully Says Goodbye to College-Bound Daughter


Ree Drummond Tearfully Says Goodbye to College-Bound Daughter

Ree Drummond is facing one of the harsh realities of parenthood: At some point, they grow up and fly the coop.

The Pioneer Woman dropped off her 18-year-old daughter Paige at the University of Arkansas for her freshman year over the weekend. She opened up on Instagram about the emotional experience…because as appealing as an empty nest sounds, goodbyes are never easy.

“Red nose, trembling chin, tight throat, aching heart. Leaving your child at college is no picnic,” the lifestyle guru began.

She went on to compare Paige’s farewell to her older sister, Alex’s, collegiate bon voyage and wrote, “I’ve done it once before and thought maybe this time would be a little easier. I think it’s a little harder. But through all the tears, I see this clearly: What a joy it is to usher her into the next stage of her life. Paige, I’m so grateful to be your mom.”

Don’t worry, mama Drummond. Surely, she’ll be back with about ten loads of laundry in tow.
