Ends and beginnings – The Bloggess


Subsequent week is Hailey’s final week of highschool and I’m mentally unprepared and in addition extremely proud to announce that Hailey acquired accepted to their first alternative, Texas State College:

What is going to they do in school? The identical factor everybody does, I suppose…change their minors 1,000,000 instances and cope with the self-doubt of seeing everybody else pretending they know precisely what they’re doing whereas secretly panicking as a result of I believe that’s just about what school is for. In my thoughts, a level is mainly only a strategy to present your first employer that you’ve the flexibility to complete a long-term undertaking whereas making horrible errors and new pals.

I’m feeling extremely fortunate that Hailey might be shut sufficient to come back again on weekends and in addition just a little bit at free ends. A buddy of mine mentioned that when your child graduates it’s like being laid off from a job that you simply solely simply began to get good at and that’s it solely.

I’m just a little terrified as a result of once I went to varsity I nonetheless lived at dwelling so I by no means knew what it was like to remain in a dorm or be away from dwelling so younger and I don’t know the way to do that greatest. Do I name day-after-day? Do I allow them to name when they need? Do I name them within the morning to verify they didn’t neglect to set their alarm or do I allow them to oversleep and be tormented with desires of lacking courses for the remainder of their lives? What do you want for a dorm? Do I encourage them to be in the identical dorm constructing with their sweetheart to allow them to help one another or a distinct dorm so that they gained’t get distracted? HOW DOES COLLEGE EVEN WORK ANYMORE?

I do know that is the time once I want to begin letting Hailey take the reigns and I do know that they’ll do nicely it doesn’t matter what however it’s so onerous to determine what my new function is. They are going to all the time be my child however now they’re an previous child (most likely a greater phrase for this) and I’m unsure what I ought to know. So I ask you, mother and father of previous infants…what have you ever discovered? What ought to I do know? What’s the factor that helped essentially the most when sending your child out into the world? Is it overkill to put GPS trackers in all of their sneakers and conceal a child monitor of their dorm room? What number of hobbies do I have to get to not continually fear about them and as a substitute rejoice how far we’ve all come?

All. Recommendation. Welcome.
