If you’re the one percent of the universe that hasn’t seen the Incredible’s 2 you have missed the short film that prefaced it, “BAO.” HERE it is if you missed it. I fought the tears in the theatre and I have a lump in my throat as I write this. Saturday my son is moving out. My first child to leave the nest.
He approached me earlier and asked if I was going to cry Saturday or be happy…YES! It’s especially hard because for so long we were each other’s “ride or die.” I had him when I was so very young and we sort of grew up together. He was as much my protector as I was his, and yes that sounds dysfunctional but that’s the truth.
That chubby little blond baby forced me to get back up when I was knocked down and be stronger than I thought I could be and at times to “calm down” when my anxiety got the best of me. I know I will survive this weekend, “this too shall pass,” and it’s time for him to spread his wings, but I sure am going to miss hearing him yell at google to sleep 7 times every morning and blaring his music…or am I?
Holy estrogen, it’s only going to be daughters around here now. That’s going to be a bloody nightmare (pun not intended) Maybe I’ll get a boy puppy to even out the hormones? And help fill the cracks in my heart. Have your kids left home? How did you deal with it? I would love to hear about it. Because right now I keep trying to eat my feelings, and it’s becoming harder and harder to resist the ruffles!
