Some Discomforts

Having some discomforts today. My 3rd oldest wants to move out, found a room to rent. I do support him 100%. We agreed that it would be a trial basis and if he makes it, then great. However, he just doesn't seem too excited about it. In fact, he doesn't even seem happy. That in itself is a huge flag for me. With his moving out, I feel I won't really know what's going on with him.

When I had a talk with him this morning, he said he's just tired. Watching him makes me sad because he "seems" sad. He seems to have lost his funny, fun self. He said, "Maybe I'm maturing, Mom." It is possible, but does he have to loose his fun personality to become mature?

Part of me realizes that, yes, he is growing up and maybe that part of his personality has to take a back seat. Another part realizes that he is working and going to college. Together, I suppose, that would cause one's child to change.

Maybe I'm feeling just a small bit of "empty nest" syndrome.....sigh*~

Positive thoughts and prayers...a lot, please!.....:-)

It could be a combination of all things Pres. Maybe he is contemplating the rent he will have to pay, maybe he is worried about leaving you?
Prayers sent your way.

Awh Polly, just reading that makes me want to cry! You are probably right. He said it is just something he wants to try. I told him, home is always here for him. I feel kids have to "learn" and their first try may not be as successful as they imagined, literally! lol! So I leave the door open for them to return home before trying it again.

Sometimes, experience is the best teacher. Thank you so much Polly.
