Did you cry or throw yourself a party.
i cried alot during my sons senior year of high school. he was moving away to college...1st born. college was only 30 miles away, haha. but he never came home after that......although was always in easy driving range. he's 30 now, just moved to TX (I'm in MA). but its okay.
my daughter...28.....seemed easier. maybe because i'd already gone through the leaving, and realized i would live. she moved to VA 3 years ago.....isee her every other month,
It was bitter sweet for me. My oldest was a very high maintenance child, teen and young adult. I wasnt sure if I should cry or sigh of relief........so I did both.
Didn't cry or throw a party......Life just went on.
It was sad when the oldest moved out but he is in the next county south so not too far. It took some getting used to though.
It was hard cause one is concerned for their safety and such. However I didn't cry or throw myself a party.
Now when my youngest flew for the first time by herself..I cried(and she was flying to my mom's in Washington State),she was 14yrs.old.
I don't know yet, both still technically live at home, but I think I am about to find out.
DD, my baby, is at college and that was tremendously hard for me, just leaving her there, I cried for days. Mine are 4 years apart so DD and I spent a lot of time together especially traveling with her soccer team.
DS, is working on buying a house and will be moving out soon so I have that looming. I know I will cry, but I also know that at 23, engaged, in school and working full time, this is the right step for him. I actually appreciate his maturity in knowing before this they he just wasn't ready to move out and now he knows that he is, he has grown up so much and I love that!!
