The Next Chapter
I hate the countdown. The countdown to when you leave me….
We have never been more proud, but the date on the calendar looms; when we drive you up to uni and you start the next chapter of your academic career and journey towards adulthood.
I will miss your goofiness; the fact that you can kind of be a mini-me. I will miss your infectious laugh daily, your continuous kindness; your beautiful face.
I know I’m going to ugly cry when we leave you at University; but you’ve proven you have the head, heart & dedication to get the marks needed for success.
So, like many parents & caregivers out there, with a child going off to College or University, we feel pride, sadness, heartbreaking love and joy. All of it.
Congratulations my middle child; my son.
Love, your Middle Child Mom.
