son...

Well I was informed the other night by son that he and a buddy were looking for an apartment together..
damnnnn.. on one hand I want to ump up and down and do a jog, but on the other I want to blat like a baby...
Where does the time go?? Yesterday, wasn't it yesterday I was buying diapers still?? Wipping nose, cleaning scraped knees, and kissing other ouchies???
He is my only child... my baby... and now he's taking the puppy tooooooo.. both babies out of the house. I do not know what I am going to do. Still worry I know.. Still wonder what hes doing( I KNOW hes doing that.., all my rubbers disappear......but at least I am not a Granny yet...) Time to let go...

When your son is on his own you get your "parent" diploma. You did all you were supposed to your own way and your son will take most of this with him. Big moment, you bet. Sad, of course. The future, you have the house to yourself so you won't have to hide those toys or videos anymore!!!

I agree with wiscraig. change is difficult. but I would like to think that you will do fine with it. Why? Because you're concerned enough to share with us. Your caring is what has made you a mom that wiped noses, fixed scraped knees, kissed ouchies and such. He'll recognize this more often than you think, but he'll most likely show up when his laundry needs done.

Oh, I know I will enjoy it... just scared for him I guess. I know I can no longer do for him.. he is an adult. Just hope he has learned enough from me not to make my mistakes, but to enjoy his own....lol T

I have always said that change is difficult...even if it is for the good! People just don't like to make changes! Take pride in knowing that you have been successful in getting him to this stage in his life. He is ready to make this next big step! It can say a great deal about the way he was raised. He is at least smart enough to know consequences, why do you think the rubbers are gone? I am willing to bet that he is back real soon! If not to move back in but for at least a home cooked meal! After a few meals cooked by himself and his friend...he will have learned another valuable lesson! If you still don't know what your going to do....Raise your head and think about all the things that you can dive into now! Go out and do something to reward yourself! This is worth rewarding yourself about! I am not telling you to stop worrying about him. He is just taking the next step towards manhood and resposibility! He is expecting you to worry about him! He may never come out and say it but it's the truth! His Mother ..you will always be! I hope that his move allows you to see how well you have raised him! As far as the puppy...you can always find another one!! You only have this one child! I am already seeing the changes in my own son (only 12 years old) that will lead up to the day that he too decides to sprout wings and go out into the world on his own!! Do you remember when you were at this point in your life?? Think back to that time period and you will get a better grip on it! Don't forget to give him a great big hug on his way out!! Keep Smiling!!! You are still a beautiful person! There are a lot of parents out there that don't care or worry for their children...he is one of the lucky ones!

Relax and enjoy the freedom! Time for babies to grow up and have their own place so he can make his own mistakes. It gets better over time as you accept the changes.
