Sad About Kids Growing Up.
My kids, aged 19 to 11, all still live at home but are getting less and less dependant, which is good I know, and spending a lot more time away with friends. I know that this is good, too but I seem to feel sad when they are not home or don't want to come on outings with their father and I. I know that this is normal and natural and healthy and good for them but does anyone else feel sad when this time comes. I mean they all still live here and some will for some time but I feel sad that the era of little kids needing me is over. Do others have this sadness?
