my kids are ages 11,12 and 17. Is it bad that I have a count down until they turn 18.
I got pregnant at age 18, had my dd when I was 19. I was a single mom for 5 yrs, when I got married at age 24, we had two children. Divorced when I was 29. I'm now 36.
I've moved back to my hometown and I hate it here. I hate that everyone knows everyone, that everyone knows where I belong, who my family is, who's business is everyone business.
Is it wrong to have goals of seeing my kids grown and wanting to live my own life once they're out of high school? Hopefully, in college. My olderst will graduate next May and wants to go to college five hours away. Which is great.
I do feel bad at time for wanting them to be grown and wanting my own life afterwards.
My baby starts football this fall, I can't wait - him being my only boy. I'm looking forward to the next few years, but still dream of a sort of free life. I know, the kids are never really gone. And I wouldn't want them to be.
just torn, I guess.
