son in to have his senior portraits taken this morning. It didn’t really hit me until I saw him go across the stage in his cap and gown that this is the beginning of the end 😦 My baby is growing up. He’ll be gone before I know it. That’s sad.
Yearbook photos were in a blue blazer and tie for seniors. I’ve seen him in a suit before, it left me unfazed. However, when he came out and waved at me in his cap and gown. It hit me. A dull ache in my chest. My baby… is not a baby anymore. He’s a senior in high school. I feel blessed that he wants to stay home and go to college, but one day he’ll be ready to move out. He’ll be leaving me here, alone, with his father LOL. I am still on the fence about how I feel about that lol. I know it has to happen, and I’ve been trying to prepare myself for it. But it wasn’t until this morning that it all began to feel real.
Is your nest already empty? How did you adjust when your kids went away to college? Leave your comments below.
Okay, I’m off… things to do. I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying their summer (or winter). BFN!
