Feeling Droopy

Hello, everyone. I am feeling a bit droopy today. My eldest daughter moved out today. I know that she has to make her own life, her own path, and her own mistakes but it still saddens me to think of her away from me. We have a special bond between us, me and her, and I feel lonely without her (It hasn't been a day yet). I hope the ache will go away sooner rather than later and that she makes the right choices, the ones that will get her educated and ahead in life. The bright side? I still have another daughter and a son who are at home and it will be a few years before the next one goes.

  1. I just wanted you to know that my second daughter is going away to college in August. She CANNOT wait, and I have to pretend that I am happy for her. I am so happy for her, I am proud of her too. But it feels like my heart is being torn from my chest. It just seems like her childhood was over in a wink! When my eldest daughter moved out I was happy, she and I just did not get along, we are way too much alike. I am happy to report that she is now my absolute best friend and I am hers as well! Who would have thought that would ever happen.

    So, just know, I sooo understand. I will have tissues for you at the ready at all times! There are lots of us moms out here I think. It is so hard to be the one left, and you have loved, nurtured, protected, fed, cleaned, guided, counseled, and cheered them on...(just to name a few of the things we've done all these years) for them to just causally move on with their lives! Ha! Take care, take heart!

    PS I love your latest LO's!!
