Moving Out

Well, it's happening. The first little bird is leaving the nest. I've been going back and forth between "how can I miss you if you don't go away" to "my baby is leaving!". It's wearing me out.

My mind, my heart knows that its time. He's almost 20. He's been staying at home to save money while he earns his paramedic degree. He hasn't been very interested in moving out until....wait for it....he has a new girlfriend. And I won't let him have sleepovers. So there ya go.

I still have the 17yr old at home and he's a junior so my next won't be completely empty.

AWWW. It's a great time and a sad time. It really is good for them. Some things they just can't learn until they have to fend for themselves (why it has to be that way I don't know - it just is). For example, my daughter simply couldn't get to class on time without me dragging her out of bed in the morning until she was no longer at home and just like that she gets everywhere on time and even understands the bus system better than me.

Smile - you've done what was needed to be done, you've gotten him to the point that he feels he can do it himself. Remember how excited you were when he first fed himself? This is just a variation.
