so it’s been almost a month since my oldest daughter packed her bags to leave us and start her life as a boarder.
And it’s been 2 weeks since we got on a plane and left her behind. It’s different.
It’s not the same, but it’s ok.
Some parents wonder how I can do it and I say why not. my dear friends in this community keep asking how I’m doing and I tell them I’m doing fine. I know boarding school is not for everyone. I did it and my husband did it and we shared our experiences with our daughter. So I think she saw it as a natural thing to do and she’s thriving. She’s loving it by all accounts. I’ve spoken to her on the phone a couple of times and she sounds happy. Busy and happy.
I miss her. of course that’s natural, but she’s loving it so I’m happy for her.
That doesn’t mean I’m not counting down the days till she comes home for school term break!!
