Letting Go and Holding On part II
I wrote about the new season of parenting. Having so much on my heart I made it a “series”
I have discovered I am ‘that’ mom.
That mom that wants to hover. Be included.
Have you ever seen Real Housewives of Orange County? No….oh me either.
I saw it once. That particular episode one of the mom’s was helicopter mom. Totally showed up at her college age son’s apartment during a party.
Ok so I am not THAT bad.
But I do miss that one of my sons is living with his buddies about 30 minutes away.
I may or may not have wanted to find an excuse to go visit….a few times. (For the record I haven’t)
You see. Since there was a time in our lives that it was only the three of us I really feel they are special. Like we bonded. I knooooow they don’t remember…they were little. But I remember.
I started writing this to help those that may be coming up on the partial empty nest…the ones with Juniors or Seniors in high school.
When, in fact, it is ME that needs help.
Letting go of my babies.
We’ve been through SO much together.
But I need to let them go.
They need me to let them go. To become the young men that God wants them to be.
With any luck the husband’s and daddy’s too.
