The Circle Game
My 18 year old daughter is leaving home on wednesday. She's going to college in January and wanted to get settled and work full time before she starts. Friday she and I drove 3 hours to find and apartment and a job. We did well and she signed a 12 month lease in some student housing.
Gosh I'm filled with so many emotions. I am so happy and proud of her, but darn it if I won't miss her. Yeah, yeah I know..."she drove you crazy" you're going to say...and yes she did...my god did she ever. But as I said to her moments ago..."why is it when your kid finally becomes someone you like to be with and can actually talk to...they decide it's time to move out!" She laughed and knew what I meant. I cried and hugged her tightly.
She's grown into a lovely young lady and I know she will be successful..I just don't know where the time has gone ~sigh~
