How do I deal with them growing up?

I've had this crazy string of headaches this week and nothing makes them go away, not even Excedrin Migraine. So I was talking to a friend about this and she says, sounds like tension headaches. I said, I'm not stressed. She said, OH NO?? And then went on to say how I have my oldest starting Kindergarten, my middle child starting preschool and my baby, my last baby, turning a year old. All within 2 weeks of eachother. My eyes immediately started tearing when she said all this.

So I guess I have some repressed emotion about all the "growing up" around here. Please tell me this gets easier, my head can't take it.

It doesn't! I was looking at my 9yo today, and held his hand up to mine. It's almost as big as mine!!!
Where did my baby go?

Geez! My DD is only 2.5 and I'm already emotional! I can't believe she's in size 8 shoes! I heard that song by Heartland " I Loved Her First" today in the car and bawled!

Re: How do I deal with them growing up?

Can you imagine when they leave the house for good to go to college or move out? Ack, I'll be holding them by the ankle!

Has anyone seen that Lowe's commercial where they talk about having everything you need for to prepare for college and they show a family shopping for a mini microwave and stuff like that? Then they drop the son off at school and get back in the car. The narrator says, "the only thing we can't prepare you for...the ride home."

I feel like this now, how am I going to leave my baby at school and just drive away? No wonder I have a headache.

Re: How do I deal with them growing up?

I had one of these moments yesterday! I was thinking about how I went away to college. It was only a couple of hours away but as a mom sending my oldest to all day kindergarten this week, it's really made me look at my own mom. How hard it must have been to let me drive away and know that she wouldn't see me every day or talk to me every day. Each day I have more respect for my mother, she was able to let us go (in a sense) and we are better people because of it.

I don't have advice, just hugs and a 'you'll get through this'.
