My son is still in high school, but his two best friends just recently left for college. Those two boys are like my own sons. They're at my house every day...eating my food...hanging out and just very fun to have around, not to mention they're my son's best friends. I was worried he was going to take it hard when they left, but so far he seems fine and has adapted himself to find other friends to hang with. I on the other hand, am the one who fell apart! Really I"m fine, but the day they said "goodbye" and a couple days after that, I just was so sad and tearful, you would have thought my own had flown the coop! I know that day is coming soon that my own son will leave for college, and I didn't think I would be so affected by these two friends of his leaving. Anybody else go through this?
