I’ve laughed AND cried this week looking at all of the posts on Facebook and instagram of everyone returning to or beginning school!  They run the gamete from starting pre-school to going off to college!  For a summer loving, momma, such as myself, this time of year is ALWAYS a bit of a bummer!  I love all my chicks in the nest!  And I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it NEVER gets easier!

My oldest daughter (my #2 child), Emma, goes to college in Nashville, Tennessee…  Hello!  I’m in Texas!!  She’s a sophomore and I still hid the fact that I stood at the airport window swiftly wiping away the shower of tears falling from my face, until her plane disappeared from sight!  The entire time I was thinking to myself, “What the heck!?  When will this get easier?”  I am beginning to think never!

It’s so hard to throw your heart and soul into something and then that something turn to you and say, “Ok.  I got this.  Back up a bit.  IM AN ADULT!!”  This is where, if I knew you a little better, I would insert a series of curse words, because it’s a bunch of blankety-blank-blank!”

My conclusion:  It never will get easier.  I will just have to learn how to keep my mouth shut and make them think “I’m cool” with the whole “leaving the nest thing”.  I’m not.

BUT…

I have these amazingly talented kiddos that I birthed!  AND My daughter, Audrey, is a gifted videographer/producer!  And  she blessed my self-pitying week with the following compilation of home videos…  That every mom will relate to.

Dear Jade, Emma, Audrey and Madeline, THIS is the very reason, I WILL NEVER be ok with any one of you flying or driving away from me…
