Is anyone's heart breaking from the anticipation of being an empty nester?

Both of my daughters are moving out for college.....I know this is what they are supposed to do, and I am proud of them, but I feel like part of me is dying. I'm going to miss them sooooo much!!!

(((((HUGS))))) My kids are still young. My oldest is only 7, and the youngest is just 9 months. I don't even want to begin thinking about them leaving me.

Laura, that made me laugh! Hopefully I won't be doing that. But, I will miss walking by their rooms (and they'd probably just say "oh, mom!" if they knew this) and cracking their door to peek in at them while they sleep....yes, I still do that!! I will miss them coming in late at night. I will miss the buzz of all their friends around the house, the laughter...and yes, even the tears!!!

aw, I still have very young children (under the age of 3) so I still have a ways to go. But even thinking about that time in our lives when they'll start leaving makes me sad! I'm scared I'm going to turn into one of those mom's who will go over to my son's dorm at college to tuck him in at night! haha
