Launching Year Series
As I sit here writing at 12:30 a.m., I am trying to put into words how painfully difficult it is to get my head around my eldest son being grown up and leaving in two months. I know I should be thrilled and excited for him and his new adventures. I am. Really. It is just so hard to imagine my life in this house, in this town, and during my days without him. I am so mad at myself for allowing my sadness and fears to dampen my joy of this time with him.
The Launching Year Series
This year is my first “Launching Year”. A term I made up for the year I am launching my first born, Tyler, into college and the world. I have decided to do a series on this, as there is so much for parents to know not only about the practical issues of what needs to be done, such as college applications and decisions, but on the emotional side as well.
