My little girl (not really so little anymore) is officially moving to England this fall.
She is enrolled in school (grateful for that), has flights booked, and even has roundtrip flights purchased to visit at Christmas.
She is really moving…to a foreign country, acrossed the ocean, far from home.
I am remarkably calm.
I wish she would go after college here. But it is no longer my choice, it is hers.
My biggest concern is accidents, injuries, or illness.
I am also super sad I will miss performances (she is a musical theater major).
But, I am also super proud. She is living her dreams. She is going out into the world, and jumping head first into life. Her confidence is admirable. She will be ok.
She will be missed.
I am ok. I will worry. But I will let her live her dreams. This is what we wish for our kids. When it happens, we just aren’t as ready as they are.
