Geez...I've been so emotional lately! Really struggling with depression these last few weeks because of all my medical crap. And today in church I was almost in tears watching all the little kids process to bring flowers to the Blessed Mother (it's a Catholic thing). The year my daughter made communion, she was asked to crown the BM, and that's all I could think of today in church! Maybe I was just missing her because she's been gone this weekend for a tournament, but I think it has more to do with the fact that my babies aren't babies anymore. DD is a teenager (just barely at 13, but definitely if you're judging on attitude!) and going into high school in just a few short months. And DS, who is my baby of babies, is going into middle school next year. I'm having a real hard time with them growing up. And with both of them moving up in schools at the same time...seems like too much for this mama to handle.
Is this normal? What am I going to do when they start leaving for college? I'm already an emotional wreck! Somebody please tell me this will get better. They're only 13 and 10 for goodness sakes!
