Leaving the Nest








Looking around the house and noticing all the simple things in life! Making me feel so lucky and not so sad, as my first beautiful child young man leaves the nest today.

Be strong Pam. It is wonderful that he has ambitions and the confidence to choose a path in life. He must have a great family and good role models. Well done you...

Oooh - I can't imagine! Hoping he enjoys his new adventures and stays safe. I'm dreading that day for me, but hoping mine spreads his wings and takes in all the world has to offer.
A day for relections indeed Pam. Keep the kettle on the boil

I feel for you Pam, but dont forget you'll always be his Mum. It makes it even more special when you do catch up for quality time.

Leaving the nest.... ahhh...those are some of what I call those 'bitter-sweet' moments. As much as you joy in the changes, you feel the twinges of pain too that things will never quite be the same again.

Hugs.............

Oh dear Pam
I remember that day vividly, like you I was very melancholy.
But be assured they do come back for such reasons as our fridge is always chock full of food, we've got Sky TV, mums good at mending and ironing and Dad can held with mechanical things!!!
But it is the start of another stage in your life for which often we are unprepared, even though we always knew that day would eventually come.
You've been a successful parent who has produced an independent young man - well done!
Take care

Pam don't worry he'll be back - speaking from experience they usually come back again.

Big hugs to you Pam. It must be hard to see your baby leave home- and they are always our babies. I hope he hasn't moved too far:)
