I don't know how to feel about this...

Monday, November 19, 2012

My youngest, my baby (25 years old, 26 in March) is getting his own apartment and moving out on Dec. 1. emoticon On the one hand I'm happy that he is getting out on his own, I mean after all, a man can't live with his Mom forever, well, he can, but he shouldn't.(unless there are circumstances that makes it absolutely necessary) Anywho, I'm getting anxious about it and I don't mean that in a good way. I'm starting to go into Mama Panic Mode! What if he needs this, what if he needs that, does he have this does he have that, can he make it on his own, will I hear from him and how often, does he have something to sit on, sleep on, clean with, wash clothes in and the list goes on. Now, the thing is he is sooooooo responsible. I know I have to let him go out on his own but he is my baby! My stomach is in knots just thinking about it! I really need to rely on my faith big-time!

    Maybe you're more worried about yourself (empty nest) than about him? What do you need to do for yourself now, to help you? Good luck!

    He'll be fine! It's time for him to find out who he is as a man. You've raised the boy...now it's transition time. You will still see him and hear from him because he loves you! Don't worry Momma! emoticon

    He can and will make it and I sure you raise him right and now you will get to watch how well of a job you did! So, stop worrying.

    I hope you can take some comfort in the fact that you have done an emoticon job as a mother. It is not easy nowadays for young adults to be able to get out on their own. Give him some space now and chances are he will be back often for all the warmth and comfort "home" always has to offer.

    Go visit the new place. Make a mental note of what he may need that you didn't see and give them as house warming gifts. You are correct. He wont have everything he needs all at once. Remember to give him his space. You can do it.

    sounds like he's going to make it.

    I'm not sure about you...lol He will always be your baby but he is not a baby. I bet he will come visit you (he's moving close?) alot.

    So just step back...breath... and let him go...now go exercise, you will feel better and get some of that Mama Panic Mode out.

    Oh if he needs something I'm sure you have taught him how to shop...hehehe

    Well you have a great day...remember you have raised a great kid who is now an adult... be happy...be glad...you deserve it. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Don't worry if he needs something he will let you know. They always come back to Mama if they need something or can't make it. If he is real responsible he will be fine. He needs to spread his wings. He loves you and will always be there for you. You sound like you have empty nest already. I have four grown kids. Although, I missed them, I also enjoyed when they left, and the times they came back. Fix him a package up, of things you think he will need,add a family picture.

    We can only lead and guide. We must let them out of the nest to flourish.You have done your job as a mother, now he must do his job as a man.
