She Just Left & I'm Already Missing Her...How Pathetic Am I?
May 6, 2009 6:13am CST
My eldest daughter, 14, just left this morning for her first class trip to Washington, DC and I'm already missing the kid! There are too many weird things happening in this world and I worry about her, plus, I'm particularly particular over who has control over my children. Some of the teachers joining her class are a little questionable as far as judgement goes. In addition, she has medical problems that I hope do not flare up on her while she is away. It's a heck of a drive, but one I will make if there are any problems. So, how pathetic am I for already worrying about and missing her? I'm not an overly protective mother...I give them their space, but...maybe it's just the fact that we're getting older and I'm realizing it head on for the first time.

See, that's what I think is pathetic...it's only for 3 days! I'm not sure if her having the problems she has medically or if it's her just not being here that is bothering me more. Probably a combination of both. I gave her my phone card to call me when she wanted to or if there was a problem.

No, you're not pathetic. It just that you love your daughter so much and you start missing her the minutes she's gone. It's not a bad thing but I think you need to get use to this. She'll grow up and eventually attending college and in the end get married. She will leave you to be stay in a different house and enter a different life. Cheer up.
