Letting them go

You bring your baby home and they need you for EVERYTHING! 

 You raise them and little by little they no longer need you. 

It is hard to let go. 

I know it is how it is supposed to be but it is hard to let you go.

I hear you. It is really hard to let go, but we all have to let them fly.

I'm just starting to have to let go a little. My oldest will be in full day school in a few weeks.

Some days I am convinced that if we had know - really known - how much it would really hurt to be parents, there would never be a "replenishing the earth" . . . for anyone.

Including men.

Oh, but they still do need us - it's just for bigger things like a shoulder to cry on, or money for car repairs, etc. I don't care as long as they come back home!

Both of my children are now on their own and it is still hard to see them as adults and letting them just be. However, it warms my heart to know that I did the best I could with them and they are doing wonderfully.
peace...Naila Moon

Aging Mommy said...

I am reading a number of posts lately about Moms getting ready to send their children off to college and about them growing up. Although my daughter is only three and some days feel like an eternity, I am already so not looking forward to the day she leaves home. I can only imagine how hard it really is to let go.

You're right. I've had 2 fly the coop and still have 3 more at home. I wonder if it gets easier the more times you do it?
