    Sending off the first kid to college, or the last?

    I have sent a few out into the world - but I think the hardest would be the last one. Still have a few years before that happens.

    each step.. I missed them both. :( I think we are just busier with the others as one leaves..
    It is hard to walk away and feel a little one in your hand as you turn your back... missed their little hands, they both were just as ready to get away and be on thier own as i.. So, really understood.. Just bittersweet.

    Sending the last one to kindergarden was my hardest day. I knew then the days of him a home was numbered. Motherhood was the best career move I ever made.

    Neither was harder or easier. Each was bittersweet in its own way. Remember, we raise them to become independent adults. What may have been the hardest were the two who stayed home and attended a local college, more so than the three who had to travel. "I'm 18 and graduated." "You still live in my house".

    Embrace this new chapter in both your lives.

    I cried when my first left home, she was my buddy. And she went far away. My son was within an hour and I saw him more often. I didn't cry for him, he forbade it!!!!

    They leave one by one and come back in twos and threes. I have lived in this house for ten years and 9 people have moved in and out! Not all that I gave birth to.

    OH, do I hear you. Same here. We had friends of our son and daughter here off and on. For some reason my house was "safe" even though I had rules!! LOL. One kid broke the rules and out he went. He called for days wanting back in but I hung firm. In the end he ended up OK. :)
