If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, then you might know my new favorite word: Godspeed. An expression of good wishes to a person starting a journey. I just sent my son off for his first time at sleep-away camp for a month-long stay. In a perfect world: I should be partying. FREEDOM! Truth: I have a splitting headache and my eyes look as if I've been punched by Rocky Balboa. All of a sudden, it feels hard to breathe. I know that he asked to go away this summer, and that he is very lucky to be going to camp, I just have a very heavy heart. I wish I could be like the moms who smile and wave, and off go their kids, merrily on their way, as the bus drives off into the distance. Unfortunately, that's not me, not my husband, not my kid. He's attached, I'm attached, and it's the only way I've known how to raise my kids - in the bosom of uber amounts of nurturing, affection and love. more...
