My daughter left today on a trip and wont return until Sunday. As she was leaving today and we hugged and said goodbye I had to catch myself form crying. I know it will only be a few days but I’ll miss her and it made me a little sad that she wont be around for the next couple of days. I never wanted to be a clingy mother but the older she gets the more I seem to become one. Maybe its the idea that she is growing up and doesn’t need me as much as she did as a child. I wonder if every mother goes through this? How do you cure it?
