I Took My…

son in to have his senior portraits taken this morning.  It didn’t really hit me until I saw him go across the stage in his cap and gown that this is the beginning of the end 😦  My baby is growing up.  He’ll be gone before I know it.  That’s sad.

Yearbook photos were in a blue blazer and tie for seniors.  I’ve seen him in a suit before, it left me unfazed.  However, when he came out and waved at me in his cap and gown.  It hit me.  A dull ache in my chest.  My baby… is not a baby anymore.  He’s a senior in high school.  I feel blessed that he wants to stay home and go to college, but one day he’ll be ready to move out.  He’ll be leaving me here, alone, with his father LOL.  I am still on the fence about how I feel about that lol.  I know it has to happen, and I’ve been trying to prepare myself for it.  But it wasn’t until this morning that it all began to feel real.

Is your nest already empty?  How did you adjust when your kids went away to college?  Leave your comments below.

Okay, I’m off… things to do.  I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying their summer (or winter).  BFN!

  1. Congrats to your son on his graduation. I do not have children, but I see a similar reaction by friends when their kids graduate or start to drive or head off to college. Your son’s independence and eventual flight from the nest means that you’ve done a fine job of raising and preparing him for the world.

  2. I did fine when my babies left our nest. But our daughter only lives 12 miles from here and Scott is doing his part to protect us. I am very Proud of them both! That helps make it easier.
