Summer vacation

So it is a monumental summer; one child will be off to college and the other will be entering high school.  I don't know how I will feel about my first baby leaving; scared for her,as the world is so much different now than when I went away, yet so excited to have her embark on her new life.  How did you all feel when your first child left for the first time.
Since my 14yr old will be in the same school for high school as he was in middle school; it isn't that much of a change, but with new kids coming in, there will be  a change in dynamics.  A core group of the "popular" kids are the ones who smoke and drink and run around all hours of the night.  My child doesn't do that; not that he's such a perfect child (ha!), but he isn't about that.  At least not yet!  I guess we will find out together.

  1. Being the mother of two teenagers is both rewarding and terrifying. I have found that having a sense of humor goes a long way in meeting the challenges.

  2. My daughter is only 4 years old and I'm already worried about her teen years. There is a lot of peer pressure and they need to know the difference between right and wrong.
    I believe that if you have a good foundation at home they are off to a good start.
