Sleepy Sundays: Letting Go

Letting GoLetting Go

I have a confession.

At times, I’m an overprotective mother. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that my son has had to deal with so much in such a short time. Being a mother sometimes means we need to learn how to let them be themselves. We need to let them make mistakes so they can learn – by themselves. It’s one of the hardest parts of being a mother for me, but I’m getting there. I’m learning to let go just a tiny bit each day because my little guy is not so little anymore. Each day he grows. Each day he shines.

Some days I wish I could rewind time.

What have you had to “let go” recently?

Have a memorable Sunday!

  1. I’ve had to prepare for my son moving out for what looks to be long term/permanent. I’ve known for years this would happen, and it isn’t that he is running away from me. He is just meant to be in a different town/region/place.

    He’s still here for some last minute medical adjustments, so when I think I am ready, he’s here a little longer. I am glad for it, but I keep holding my breath at each appointment now.

      1. He’s smart. He has a plan. he’s still here because he wants to have his mental health care in order before just leaving. I have trust in him, even if I don’t trust his dad…luckily, it’s a large family and I do trust plenty of others to help him keep his head clear and on his goals.

        Thanks for letting me blather on here, no doubt I’ll be leaning on y’all before too long ❤

        1. You can unleash on here anytime girlie. That’s why my comment prompt instructs you guys to build your own little card castle. 😀
          He’ll be fine, sweetie. He has a good support system. It’s our nature to feel that way. It’s the mark of a mama lion. 😉

        1. *throws confetti* All joking aside – I really am happy for you. Health is of the utmost importance because you’ve got those amazing little storm troopers. (& That littlest storm trooper is just SO adorable! He’s going to be an Einstein – mark my words. I can tell already.)
