I signed the papers… but only now is it really sinking in. With bags packed, my baby glances back as my heart bleeds, “Don’t worry mom. I’ll be home Wednesday.”
Sunday 160 is a creation of Monkey Man. If you’d like to participate or check out other 160s visit him at http://petzoldspracticalprose.blogspot.com/
Tomorrow morning my 11 year old is going away on his first overnight school trip. I know he’ll be fine, but even thinking about not having him nearby is difficult for me. As parents, we try to do what’s best for our children and sometimes that means letting go. I’m sure, by the time he comes back, we’ll both have benefitted from the experience.
