It's Coming...

It really is coming. Lindsey is moving out soon. We will be down to ONE KID in the house. And that one? She will be 18 in less than 2 months. Still in high school and at home for 3 more months after that but I will no longer have any "children" - I will have ADULT CHILDREN.


Kinda weird but you know what? I CAN'T WAIT! I have the most amazing relationship with my oldest. And a key ingredient is, SHE DOESN'T LIVE WITH ME. I can't wait to have that with the other two. Really. I want to be friends and not "just" mom. I am so tired of having to nag about chores etc. I want to be done with that! I don't want to be "mom" any more. Not unless my kids have FOUR LEGS!!!!!

Now don't get me wrong. I love my girls and I always will, no matter what. I will always care whether they are happy or sad, whether they are healthy or sick, whether their lives are going well or not...

That part of "mom" is ok.

But I am really really really looking forward to no more nagging!!!!!
