Off they go, a little excited and a little sad.
Along the way, they walk side by side, two pieces of my heart holding on.
Happy to see that they are growing up, although sometimes it seems to happen so fast.
I will have time to shop and run errands on my own, but will miss at times, the “Don’t touch that,” and “No, we are not buying that.”
Be well, learn, and know that I will be the Mom who gives you a great big hug when you get home.
