Open Houses, Campus Tours and Learning to Say Good~Bye

Daughter and MotherThis morning I sat at my desk with my Droid in hand as Miss 16 rattled off 2 weeks’ worth of appointments for Open Houses and campus tours.  gasp Open Houses and Campus Tours?!  Where did the time go?  Wasn’t it just yesterday that I brought home this precious little bundle of baby, totally unsure of how we’d both survive?  Now she’s telling me that she has mapped out my life for the next 2 weeks because controlling my life for the last 16 years hasn’t been enough.

My daughter is graduating from high school in the spring and I don’t know if I’m going to survive.  I’m fighting back the tears as I type this right now.  I mean, my daughter, is graduating.  Yes, I realize that I have three more at home just like her but….  Well, I’m just warning you now be prepared for tearful posts about my daughter leaving home.  In 7 months.
