My youngest daughter just left for college a couple of weeks ago and I’m having a heck of a time getting used to her being gone. I had tried to mentally prepare myself for this time but no matter what you think about it before there’s no way you can make a child leaving the nest an easy thing. I keep telling myself that if I’d pressured my husband to have that third child a few years back I’d still be a mommy at home like I’ve always been! I got satelliteinternetbroadband.com internet for the house so Kelly and I can email more often and she’s really good about calling so that helps. I’m thinking about getting a part time job, too, to keep me busy and help me forget about how quiet the house is when there’s no one in it but me. I guess I just never thought about what it’s like to be a stay at home mom with no kids to “mom” anymore…am I the only one?
