I usually post on Facebook. It’s my way to connect to my life, friends, and family that are far and away.
Today, however, I thought that perhaps my feelings may be needed here, too…After all, I know that I am not alone in this world, raising kids, and letting them go.
Here’s to you, moms and dads out there…Here’s to letting them fly!
Do you feel the same as I???

i dropped max off for school this morning and left him in the capable hands of his teachers GOING on a field trip. needless to say—i feel literally like crying.
this little boy that i thought would NEVER go to school is now heading into the real world alone (well—with school )…without me to protect his every movement.
if you are a parent of a survivor, you feel the grip of my fear.
if you are a parent of an allergy kid, you feel the grip of my fear.
if you are a parent—you FEEL the grip of my fear.
how is it that we are to raise them and let them fly???
i want to clip his wings.
alas, he is off—in this world—exploring.
