Mini meltdown.....


My son graduates from high school at the end of the week and I am having a mini meltdown...who knew it would be so emotional? I sure didn't! First and foremost, I'm relieved that he's graduating...LOL But as a mom, I'm also feeling a sense of loss...beginnings of empty nest? Probably so.....

you are not alone! my middle son just graduated last weekend, and i was not prepared for the flood of emotions. just driving by the high school pool sets me off, knowing i won't ever get to sit in there sweating to watch him swim the 1650 free again...boohoo. and to top it off, he just joined the air force! thank goodness we have our art!

It is so hard to see them grow up My last chick graduated last year. I realized no more bleacher bottom for me. After 5 extremely active boys there was nothing. Very strange. I will say a year later life is good, and I don't miss it as much as I thought I would. Long and short of it is you are having normal feelings. Just go with it.

bless your little heart!!! of course you are going to feel very emotional!! remember the 1st day of kindergarten? this signifies a new stage of his life and yours..but,don't worry,he's still going to need you.and..empty nest,what's that?still have one at home(25,and her 3 kids!!).I do understand though..my son moved out and I only had a 3 hour notice!!(spur of the moment thing with his,then,girlfriend)..broke my heart..cried for days!! I still go in his room just to feel him there!! it's funny..you spend all your time guiding them to be self-sufficent,happy,productive adults..once they are there,it's hard to let go!!
