I have two kids. I have a 20 year old son and a fourteen year old daughter. I have always been a stay at home mom to both of them. When my son little we were really close. Now hes 20 and talking about moving out on his own. It makes me sad because things will never be the same.

I am very close to my fourteen year old daughter. Today is her first day of High School. That is so sad and hard to believe. When she was little she would not go to anybody but me. She was very shy and would cry everyday about wanting to stay home with me. She is more outgoing now and I am proud of her. Both of my kids are good kids.

My daughter still tells me alot of things that I would never of told my parents. My son also tells me more than the average kid probably does. But I feel so sad.
I literally spend everyday with my daughter we hang out and do lots of things together. I always tell her not to feel like she has to do stuff with me. I encourage her to invite friends over and do things.
I know soon thought she will always be with her friends or have a boyfriend and our relationship will change. I do not think a mother and daughter could be closer than we are. I just hope she doesnt change and get that teenage attitude.
I know I need to let her grow and break away, but I just love her so much.
I look back to the days spent playing at the park all day and going to the library, swimming, playing with her dolls and its gone now. I just wish I didn't feel so sad. Thinking about it makes me cry. I am glad to see I am not the only person to feel like this

I try very hard to focus on positive, but the sadness creeps in for me as well. Sharing does seem to help.
