Hi, my son who is 18, just left to go to homecoming, and I could barely hold back the tears. I know he is growing up, but I feel so sad. After he left, I went back to bed.

WOW! That is a ton of kids! All I have is my son with me these days and he is an angel. We are close. Sounds like you are doing good though. Just keep it up.

Our kids grow up. Its not graduation yet. He still has the rest of the school year. How do you plan to handle things when he does graduate and go to college or move out of the house? I had to go through this early with my kids at the ages of 12 and 5 because I had to let them go to live with dad after we settled for joint custody for their benefit and stable mind and peace. Its not easy to let go no matter the age of the child. It hurt for a long time that I had no one to come home to after the divorce. It was hard to figure out how to handle my time until the weekends that I had them came. But you know what? I made it through that first year fine even though it felt like 100 years and now have a good strong bond with both of them.

Thank you do much , Evelyn. I will surely take your words to heart. It has been a difficult year as my husband retired in January. He is 67; I am 57. It has been a difficult transition. I hope to find a "nanny" job soon and get out of the house.

My son enjoys bringing his friends to our house. I try to take good care of all of them. There were about 10-15 people sleeping at our house last night!

Thank you, again for your support.

I am glad you are thankful for my response. I also had to let go 2x more with my oldest when that one went off to college and then got married. So, it happens again but it was not as bad as the first time but they were so much younger. Just enjoy the time he has left at home with you and make the most of this year with him as much as you can. Do things together that will leave lasting memories and focus on him. It will make your relationship that much more and stronger.
