I was on recently on a blog titled A Mother’s Wit and I read an interesting article about a parent struggling with the fact that her child is getting ready to go off to college.
I can truly relate…when my daughter was young the prospect of sending her to school and having more time to myself was enticing. Now that day is fast approaching, it saddens me.
I have raised her for the past 18 years, gotten use to her being around, hearing her voice, spending great times with her and now that will be changing forever. Of course I will see her during college breaks and during the summer months, but it will not be the same.
As a father I guess I am realizing that there is a sensitive side to me and that letting go of our children is very hard to do, even when we have thought about and prepared for this for years.
