SAHM Empty Nest Syndrome

My life of a stay at home mom is about to change. On Monday my nest will be empty during the day. It's going to be a major shock and change here for me. I've had children home with me since early 2007. I'm really a ball of nerves with my smallest baby heading to Pre-K and oldest to 1st grade.

We visited the schools and teachers this week. My first grader is jealous of the fort built in the pre-k room. I loved that they had Pooh to greet the children. Really memorable for the little ones.

I suppose my house might get clean, I may get blogging done during the day, grocery shopping will be quite and boring. I'm going to miss my babies. I've been hanging so tight to them these past few weeks and spending extra cuddle time. They grow up so fast. I guess I'm going through SAHM Empty Nest Syndrome?

So that's what they call it. I've been going through that for years. My baby is 33 yrs. old and my children can be standing right in from of me, but yet I miss my babies. Who are these adult people standing in front of me. I want my babies!!!

My children are grown and I still miss them as little children. But, now I have my grandchildren stopping in after school for snacks. That fills a big hole for me!
