My lovely, only daughter moved several states away to find a job. She has been gone about 2 months and hasn't called home since. She has emailed me about every 10 days which I am very happy about. It's usually small talk but tells me she's fine. She told me she doesn't call like she should. She says she's trying to figure out everything for herself and wants some resolutions from some things before she starts calling in with updates. ( I would like to tell her she doesn't need to call to give so called updates!!) She's trying to get 2 feet on the ground I know.
She tells me she wants to have great news and great things to say when she calls.
She doesn't want me to feel like what she tells me are my things to figure out or for me to come up with a solution. She's trying to figure everything out without needing help. She is correct with me trying to help her too much.
So I have not called her. Should I call???

I agree with Lisa Ann........give her space to grow. I know it hurts because my DD has done that too, but they do need time and space to figure just where they are going. Sorry your going through this, but I really think most Moms go through it. Good luck hon.
