    Default Why do kids have to grow up?

    my DS 18 finishes 12 years of schooling in 3 weeks then has HSC exams..
    He informed me tonight that on 26th Oct he is moving 1 hour away into his GFs house with her mum and sister...

    I knew it was going to happen as they have been talking about it for a few months but since he told me I havent stopped crying... IM NOT READY !!

    I will still have DD15 at home but there will be a hole...

    Oh why do kids have to grow up and leave the nest??

    Im one unhappy mumma tonight

    Awww, hugs, that would be hard.

    my DD1 said to me "I love being 5. I don't want to grow up". I love her at 5 too, it's such a gorgeous age, but I know in what seems like the blink of an eye, I will be in your shoes....and I'll be sobbing too.

    Huge hugs

    I so understand, DS1 is currently pack packing around the world with still about 18 months before he returns and DS2 is moving 60kms away this weekend. My nest is shrinking as well

    It's really really hard!

    Hugs. I know it really hard. My dd move all the way across the country for Uni. It was heart breaking. I promise it will get a little easier as time goes on. Dd has been gone 18 moths now. I still have days when i just want her home especially when she is sick but overall i am happy that she is living her dreams.

    Argh! My first baby is only 3 weeks old and I just sit and stare at her and have cried a few times because I'm so scared time is going to flash right before my eyes and before I know it she too will be all grown up and moving out. NOOOOO!

    thanks ladies
    Yes i am dreading it.... but we do have to let them grow up and fend for themselves...

    oh if only he was a newborn or even 5 again !!! ENJOY it

    yes DD will be 16 a few days after he goes and she has a bf and gets her Ls as well and announced last night she wants the bf to sleep over and she wants to go on the pill....I think i aged 10 years last night.......

    oh why do our babies have to grow up?

    Oh boy...they are really hitting you hard at the moment. My bio DS is 20 and at Uni which is only 5 mins drive away but he still wants to move out. The only thing stopping him at the moment is lack of a job but I know as soon as he gets one he'll be leaving the nest. I don't want him to go either but can't stop him.
