Thank you both so much. You've no idea the weight you've lifted off my shoulders. I was feeling so stuck and alone.
And, I just ordered the book!
Thank you again.
Things to make you feel better (maybe):
He's lying when he says he's not scared.
He really does want care packages
He doesn't get along with his roommate that well
He's not partying that much
Do not friend him on facebook. It will scare both of you.
He'll use it if you send it, but may not buy it himself - laundry soap, body soap, clean socks
Subbing. I've got a bit to go- my son will be 14 next week, but I've been thinking alot about how fast it will go and I can't imagine not seeing and talking to my son every day. I still sneak in and check on him in the middle of the night if I'm awake- I joke about driving across town in the middle of the night to check on him when he moves out. And I think about my Mother- I only see her maybe 4 times a year, talk to her on the phone about once a week. I can't imagine that with my son. (Yeah, I know, I'm jumping ahead of myself.)
I absolutley love this thread and am so happy to find new insights from other moms.
As much as we talk about all aspects of parenting, this part of it still feels a bit like being in the wilderness. This summer has been a real roller coaster of emotion so far. I hope it smooths out a bit.
