Like a lot of mums my child has returned to university to start her second year and to those with children starting their first year who are worried I will offer this..
The year flies past, they come back and communicate more than you feared and it will be the making of them, just remember they still need you even when they are making out they don’t. They will eat, wash, even do their own laundry and survive it!
As parents we are never redundant, some days it may feel like it. It’s a great opportunity to get your own life back on track and take up new opportunities. Life evolves and will continue to do so.
The summer will soon arrive and they will be back eating your body weight in food, making a mess, making you giggle and disrupting your schedules beyond recognition bless them all.
