 The day is here.  I can't believe it.  I don't know why, it's not like I expected her to never move out.  But I am having a really hard time holding it together :(

It'll get easier....

One of those bittersweet times of being a Mom! I liked to focus on the excitement of it all - having your own place and remembering what it was like when I got my first place!

I am sorry you are feeling so sad. It is what you have spent all of those years doing, raising her so that she would be able to leave the nest. Go ahead and cry. You'll soon realize that she'll be back, and you'll still be about to talk with her. ((hugs))

I'm really sorry. I know how you feel. When my son was twenty, he moved out for a year and a half. I cried for two weeks, before he moved. I hope she comes back a lot and spends a lot of time with you, at least until you can get used to it. I know how hard that is. Good Luck to you.

Quoting Bmat:

I think that is great advice. I hope her daughter comes back a lot, at least until her mom can get a little used to it, even though I don't know if that ever happens.
