My Baby

I put my baby on an airplane last night to fly to another state. They would not allow me to accompany my baby through security to the gate. I watched my baby's airplane leave the gate and I may have been a bit sad. Okay....my baby is almost 16, 6'2" tall and was being met on the other end by his father...but...he..is...still...my...baby...right?

Oooh, my heart aches for you...Yes, still your baby. ALWAYS your baby. Praying for you..it's so hard to be away from our kids.

Oh my! That would be terribly hard. And he's absolutely still your baby - they are never too old to be our babies!

Girl...I feel for ya. I'm not so sure I could do that. I might have to buy a round trip ticket just to escort him there.
I know...I know...we have to let go sometime. But doggone it is hard.

That would have been hard for me.

Oh it makes me feel anxious and I'm not even the Mother : )

(maybe you and the 4-hers could make jelly-it's pretty simple and then they'd have the satisfaction of knowing they put something up for the future)

Oh that would be so hard! I remember seeing some solo kids on our flight to San Antonio and the mother in me just wanted to go hold their hands and get them safely to their destinations. Of course, that would have probably gotten me some questions, so I just watched from a distance as we arrived at the gate. ;) Always your baby, no matter how old!
