photostory friday: de javu (all over again)

June 2010

February 2012

same room

different child

same emotions too, although for the child leaving home, i guess the emotions are pretty much the same (for them):

scared (maybe a little)

...however i am completely incapable of articulating them

not because i don't want to, but because it's hard to put into words how you feel when your child leaves home

sooooo, if you're a mother and you've had child/ren leave home

you'll know how i feel

PS: i wrote this post on Feb 1st, and miss 20 left home on Feb 6th
it's amazing to read this now - not even 3 weeks hence

this photo was taken of her ACTUALLY leaving home
it was totally surreal

i of course saw her the very next day to take the 3 girls to the supermarket to do their first 'flat' shop
(they wanted to do it together, but had no means to get there!)

it's amazing how much attention they paid to the price of each item when they were paying for it themselves!!!

I'm always amazed what my kids are perfectly willing to do without if THEY have to pay for it. :)
