In yet another milestone of this move (seriously, this is epic- too many big milestones) my 15 year old daughter left today. She is spending the whole summer in Stratford with my sister in law and her little family babysitting her cousin. We won’t see her again until the end of summer, just before school starts.
It’s good, she is exactly the right age for a cool experience like this but damn, I will miss her. It’s already weird having my oldest move out and the rest of us leave the province but with only three kids left at home right now I suddenly feel naked of children. Yeah, I know that sounds creepy but when you’ve lived literally your entire life surrounded by younger children when they all start to leave, it leaves you feeling like a big something is missing. Like pants, only more important.
Still need to work on that playlist for the loooong drive, although when in the hell will I have time for that?? Nine days to go. It’s frickin’ flying by. Anyone want to come over and help me pack?
Have a great summer, my Aislinn. We love you.
