Excuse me as I have a moment...(bring on the tears)....Because on August 22, 2017 I had to let my child go. It was one of my hardest moments in motherhood. I'm still traumatized and depressed that I had to let go my baby who has been beside me everyday since he has been born.
My son has left me to go to Pre-K.....
He said "Mama, I'm a big boy now", but he will forever be my baby and I'm just not ready to let him go, but I must.
Ok....Maybe I'm being overdramatic and I could be overreacting a little, but this is hard. Being a stay at home mom is more meaningful with them home, but now that all the kids have left I have to discover what's the next step in life for me.
But as emotional as I am about all the kids leaving me alone as they go to school, I'm really in need of this "me time". I mean I can take a bath and use the restroom without someone in there with me or banging on the door. I don't have to yell all day. I can take a nap in peace. I can go to the grocery store alone (I can't wait). I can go get a job or just do something I like just for me.
So sure I'm sad that I had to let the baby go, but I'm happy that he's growing up and that I have some time for myself. Because this mom is in desperate need of "me time"
