From Fledge: Launching Kids Without Losing Your Mind
“I walked into Mrs. Martin’s kindergarten classroom with my daughter. Jenna wore a rust-colored shirt and a plaid skirt with a felt name-tag pinned to her chest. She was excited for her first day of school. I was eight months pregnant, and my toddler was tagging alongside. Mrs. Martin looked up at me and smiled, knowing I was dropping off my first child for her first day of school.
I turned the corner after saying goodbye, headed toward the car, and burst into tears. I had so many emotions. Fear. Sadness. Biggest-moments-of-life-feelings.
The ache of your child growing up, reaching milestones, and moving on to the next stage. Ache of a love so deep that it hurts, because it’s outside of yourself and you can’t grab hold of it.
I’ve felt that feeling several times since my firstborn went to kindergarten. How do you manage the struggle for eighteen years or more of letting go while holding on at the same time? How do deal with the changing family, lifestyle, and hormones as each child leaves home?”
As a counselor and mom of four kids, ages teens to young adults, Brenda gives parents hope, humor, and faith-based strategies to meet the vast changes during the years of releasing your kids. This book is for all parents living life between the full house and the empty nest.
