Becoming an Empty Nester

Sunday, November 03, 2019

My daughter found her first apartment today. There was an ad in our little employee newsletter. Another teacher in my district had a studio apartment above her garage for rent. It is a cute little apartment and only 6 minutes away. So, my daughter can begin her adult life, but still call on mom and dad if she needs anything.

She can move in next weekend.

Wow! That happened fast!

    Great. Not too far, not too close. She can come and go and Mom and Dad won't know when. Just enough independence.

    Awwwww, HUGS! My DD moved out in February (she's 24). She moved 6 minutes away, too! So, close enough to get a "mom fix" (and Dad fix) if she wants/needs. It's nice to see the kids becoming adults! Lots to learn when they move out on their own. But that's part of life.

    HUGS and congrats to your DD and good luck to you.

    Glad she is staying close. It's a part of life we want for them but miss them even when they are close by.

    Congratulations to her. It will be a big adjustment for all of you.
