    Please forgive me if I'm a total bitch for the next month or so.

    We dropped her off at college yesterday for her first year.

    Well the two of us can commiserate LOL.
    Our kid is off to finish her last 2 years of high school at an arts acadamy- 9 hours away. We take her next Thursday.
    I'm totally freaked out. It's going to be a totally different life for all of us from now on.
    WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA................

    Hang in there, mom. :thup:

    Ours is staying local for first two years. Makes sense since she can get the standard stuff out of the way and she doesn't know what she wants for a major yet....more and more in CA are going this way.

    At first, early in the evening, it was kind of fun. The house was quiet and my husband and I cooked a super healthy dinner and hung out (my son is with his dad this weekend). Then, about 9:30 p.m., it hit me that I hadn't seen her all day and I had to have a little cry. God, I am a ginormous pussy about my kids.

    I remember those feelings and thinking how wimpy I was being...then not too long after my daughter was away, she called and I could hear the sadness in her voice, and she told me how much she was missing me. All my self-pity disappeared for that moment while I needed to be her rock and give her lots of words of encouragement. Afterwards I cried, but was grateful to be missed also.

    I feel you.
    It's my son's second year and dropping him off this year was just SLIGHTLY less painful than last year. I console myself with the anticipation of the great things he's going to do with his life.
    Hang in there sweetie and don't be bummed if she's so excited about being out on her own that the phone calls and internet chats are shorter than you'd like for a while.
    That'll all change in a couple of months. Promise. ;)

    I'm sorry to hear that catz. We have a son in London, he's 30 and my wife goes nuts that she can't see him. Love mothers.
