I spent this past weekend with my oldest daughter. She met a man (yes, when you are 25, it's a man) in June and they had been dating until.......Friday. He's decided that he "can't give her the time that she deserves" and "needs to end it....for now". What a crock of crap. Just be honest and say you don't want to date anymore. So, I went and stayed with her so she wouldn't have to be alone. She is student teaching about an hour from home. It's definitely more serious when you are out of college and dating....and I was not prepared (as a MOM) to feel just as bad as she did. When your child is in pain (no matter how old) so are you.
So now I've been thinking. I have THREE daughters...all of which will go through this, probably not once but many times. How am I going to fare through all of this???? Good grief.
As for my son? Ah, well, I have that all figured out. He will become a priest...that way I don't have to worry about another woman...(I'm kidding, of course....silly!)
