Morning Peeps! 👋
I was having a lovely chat with the teenager this morning when I realised that these ‘normal’ conversations mean I’m really old! (Okay, I’m not because I was young when I had her, but I feel very old!)
Our daily conversation involves her college application/university choices, course she’ll be doing this time next year, travel she wants to do, where she wants to live….you get the idea.
I love that she’s excited and will have adventures, I’m not wishing for her to still be small because I enjoy this stage.
But… I am not ready. I mean sure I’ll miss her and such but I think it’s more that I’m not ready to be ‘middle-aged college mum with empty nest’.
It’s weird. I’m not sad or scared (more than normal for a mother letting her baby out alone) I’m really excited for her, but I feel a lot older all of the sudden.
Anyone out there who can relate?
God bless you if you are a student or parent going through this application process!
