Bye. Love you. I’ll miss you too.

Moving Day
My oldest is moving back to school today.

It's the third year she's moved away from me to do this, so you'd think I'd be used to it.

I'm not. 

I miss my daughter when she's not here at home and I worry about her too.

I realize the reason she can go and be successful on her own is because I've done my job.

I want her to be independent.

I want her to not need me.

I just want all that and I want her with me too. 

And yes, I realize that makes no sense.

My heart just doesn't make sense.

Does anyone's?

  1. Awwwww I totally get that and had a somewhat similar experience: took my youngest to kindergarten to visit her new class for the first time. She was not the least bit scared and jumped right in and helped the other kids clean up at clean up time (which occurred about 5 min after we got there). Ok – so it’s not the same thing as college, but I think I felt a small bit of what you feel. Congrats on doing such a great job of raising your daughter!
