Sometimes being a mum is the hardest job in the world. You try and do your best for your kids and they just get to the time in their life where they need to move on and do their own thing.
This week i found myself having to do this with my daughter, she has moved out and has gone to live somewhere else for a while. I know this is the best thing for her to do and she will learn to stand on her own two feet. She needs to understand how hard it is to be an adult and be responsible. She has to understand she has to help out with the chores and do them properly and also help out financially.
I feel like she has to find a happy medium between having everything done for her and people helping her financially, to being completely independent for a while. She will learn a few of life's lessons and she knows she is always welcome to come home any time she wishes (although we are so overcrowded lol) and my door is always open to her.
being a teenager is a hard time in your life as its when you learn your not a child any more yet sometimes you don't fit in being an adult. Then suddenly turning into an adult, you feel lost and the responsibility is too much to cope with.
I guess this is sink or swim time for her and she knows i am here for her if she needs me, i am afterall always going to be her mum.
