Well, I am glad others are feeling it too and I am just not a wimpy dad.

My 16 year old is a junior in high school, getting his drivers license, girlfriends, hanging out - dad is just not the favorite thing to do any more.

I just got all emotional and sat and cried last night.

Okay - time to start putting my life back together after 16 years of constant attention, driving and going to activities, wiping noses, etc. I have plenty to do, but I guess in 16 years you grow into a bunch of habits that are just hard to break.

Smile - they are growing up to be responsible adults.....

While raising our kids definitely caused me plenty of gray hairs, I don't regret it at all. My son is now an officer in the ARMY and my daughter is in her senior year at college and is away from us. She will also be getting married this Jan, and both her and her husband will be officers in the AirForce.

LOVE and ENJOY them as much as you can, when you can. They grow up so fast and leave us all alone. How ungrateful they are. LOL

I sent my baby to school for the first time today, it's tough at any age.

I hate to admit it but I am really going to miss my son when school starts tomorrow. He is 14 and entering high school. My other child is an adult and in college in Florida. My son is smart and funny and we enjoy each others company. I guess I feel sad because I know that at his age spending time with Mom won't be one of his favorite things to do much longer. I have plenty of things to do and people to spend time with - it isn't that. I know that I am fortunate that I have such wonderful children that I have always found delightful. Thanks for reading!
