Comings and Goings

My kids are adults.

There, I said it.  And it made me a little queasy.

This year there are a lot of changes in my house.  No one is waiting for a class schedule or bus pass.  I don’t need to worry what teachers want with regard to notebooks and supplies. I have no more back-to-school nights and I can’t call teachers to see how any of them are doing.

I have college students.  All three of the Offspring are in college or grad school.  *Sigh.*

Having college students is weird.  They aren’t independent, but they aren’t children.  They need some autonomy, but they need boundaries.

And did I mention I’m a control freak?  And overprotective? We are not in a good place right now.

What it comes down to is that I have problems with change.  I’m trying to be more easy going, but it’s hard. Just ask MH.  He’s suffering.  Truly.

Tell me…how do you deal with change?

I’ll check back later on.  I have to drive O2 back to college now. *Sniffle.*
