I feel like whining....so if you're looking for anything else, you might wanna pass by tonight...I understand and no hard feelings :-) As most of you know by now, my three daughters are pretty much my reason for living. As with most parents...I'm over-the-top proud of them and would gladly skin and microwave anyone that ever hurt them. But I have recently determined that I am absolutely NOT ready for them to be all grown up!
It looks like BigSis is going to be moving in June. Yes, I know it's only four hours away....yes, I know it's a good opportunity for her...yes, I remember that I left home at 17 and have lived all over the world...and yes, I'll do what's right and be supportive....but I'll be damned if I have to like it!!!
And then there's Jumble Mash...her and bf now live almost an hour away! Yes, I know it was a compromise that cut both of their commutes...yes, they've made themselves a nice home....yes, they seem happy together....and yes, I'll do what's right and be supportive....but I'll be damned if I have to like it!!!
And last, but certainly not least...LilSis now has a significant other (I haven't met him so he doesn't rate a nickname)...yes, I know she's an adult...yes, I know her self-esteem has improved dramatically with her weight loss...yes, I know she has a good head on her shoulders...and yes, I'll do what's right and be supportive...but I'll be damned if I have to like it!!!
I want my little girls back...I want to be the most important person in their lives...I want to be the one they turn to when they are hurting...I want to be the one that they know they can count on...I want to be the first one they tell their exciting news...I want to be the one that comes to their rescue....I want to be the one that solves their problems...yes, I'll do the right thing and step aside so they can live their lives...but I'll be DAMNED if I'll like it!
