Fly Away Little Birdie

I promise I haven't keeled over.

I've just been in the process of processing that my oldest was

1.) leaving me and
2.) left me.

I've decided I had this whole parenting thing all wrong. Why did I think I needed to make my children independent? I should have sheltered them and made them totally reliant on me so that they would never leave me.

Of course I never thought that they would move farther than down the road. Definitely not all the way across the country.

But I think I'm making it over the hump. I might actually eat food that is good for me today tomorrow and go back to the gym. I like, totally haven't cried at all today yesterday so that's a miracle.

Pin It

Where did your little birdie fly to? College or job? Hard being a mom, isn't it?

I know! You spend all these years working toward your child becoming independent, and then you're shocked - SHOCKED - when they leave. Weird.
