Saturday was a big day for our oldest daughter. She took her ACT test.
I didn't sleep very well on Friday night for fear of over-sleeping and her not making it to the test on time. I had a nervous feeling on Saturday morning as she sat in her test. Why was I nervous? I wasn't the one wading through algebraic equations, interpretting scientific graphs or conjugating verbs.
I was nervous because in my mind this is the beginning of the end. The beginning of college prep. The end of having her at home.
I know. I'm exaggerating. I have two years with her yet. But do you have any idea how fast those two years will go? And then where will I be?
I'll be writing big dollar checks to some university. I'll be moving her from home to a dormitory. I won't be able to kiss her cheek each night as she goes to bed. I won't see her smiling face each morning.
The thought of her not being at home literally puts my heart in my throat.
So what is a mama to do? I'll be making a concerted effort to make the most of each and every moment we have together. And, if any one has advice on how to get through this......I'm all ears.
