Even though she has been gone to college for a year, this time she left is different.
This time no one else is living at home.
|Off on their next adventure----parenthood:) and dental school|
In theory I should celebrate...no more rolling eyes, or stinky tennis shoes. No more negotiating curfews or text message limits. No more piles of stuff on the stairs, empty milk containers in the fridge, or wet swimsuits on the wood floor.
So many things I will miss. Late night chick flicks with the girls and phone calls saying "Mom when are you coming home." I will miss yummy smells from the kitchen that I didn't cook, hugs, surprise notes on my pillow, and a million other perks that come with parenthood.
I am a busy girl with
a school foundation,
a business network,
and a church young women group.
However...being busy does not replace being with my children.
It will always be here if you need to rest your wings for a while:)
|an empty nest just outside my kitchen window|
I take these words from my favorite children's book of all time:
as long as I'm living my babies you'll be"
