I had a major life event this weekend...
Monday, August 09, 2010
I think I'm still in shock, my only child left home for supposedly the last time this weekend.
She's 23, working full time, and it was time for her to leave the nest and stretch her wings.
I am used to her absence, she hasn't been home much in the past few years but her room was there, intact. She's moving it out. I got ferklumpt when her dresser went out the door.
I remember buying that dresser used for $35, painting it and making a pad for the top to use as her changing table. Her dad painted forget-me-nots on and her changing pad was blue flannel with a fluffy cloud print. The changing pad is long gone and now the dresser is in her first grown-up apartment.
I'm happy for her, I'm celebrating this milestone in both our lives, but sometimes I just get a lump in my throat and a tear in my eye.
