My daughter graduated this weekend. It was a very cool time for her with all kinds of flowers, balloons, parties, hugs, pictures, and all kinds of nostalgia of high school being over and getting ready to start her life. I was always excited to watch her and all the things that she experienced as she grew up. I was never one to say I wish she would stop getting older or would stay a little kid or any of that. But I can't lie, this weekend has been a tough one for me. Out of nowhere, I flooded with the extra thoughts of all the times with her, the experiences with her, the fun times, the shitty times, the laughs, the cries, all of it. I get teary just thinking about her. As a parent, you know you love your kids, you tell them you love them, but it's in moments like this that you truly feel it. I miss her and she hasn't even left yet. I guess I miss the fact that she is an adult now and won't "need" her parents. Ok I know she still will, I mean I still need that connection with my parents, but it will be different. Not worse, just a different chapter. The hardest part about being a parent is that you get to go on the life ride with your kids but you aren't in control of any of it. You feel the joys. You feel the hurts. You feel the frustration. You feel the successes. You feel the failures and everything in between (of the things you know about anyways lol). I am more excited than I can say for her, I truly am. But I miss her already, a ton lol. So if you get a chance, drop your folks a line. Say hi. Whether they say it or not, they are always thinking about you and how you are doing. Lexi, go get em, kid! I'm here in the wings in case you need anything and cheering for you non-stop!! :)
