My daughter is a teenager, but you would think she is an adult, completely independent, and even my son is starting to follow in her footsteps. I realize that I am 34 and soon will be 37 with a daughter in college and a son in high school. I don't know what happened but somewhere along the way they grew up. I can't believe it.
My daughter and I sit and look at colleges together and I just want to stop time and say NO, she isn't going to go. The reality is she will go and my son will follow 4 years later. My husband and I have big plans for when my kids are all grown up, but it doesn't make it any less harder.
Be sure to cherish every moment with your family :)
