We were sitting in the backyard on Sunday morning, talking about, what else, Carson leaving for college. I looked over and Susan was crying and even he was wiping away tears.
It's hard. He's my buddy. I think maybe I've been too focused on the sad part of him leaving and not enough on how exciting it is for him. A good friend of mine reminded me "I think you need to stop telling him this is the 'last.' I think you both know that. Focus on the positive and enjoy the memories.
That's' actually a really good point!
In my podcast this week, we get some advice from someone who's been there and has done her homework for the rest of us.
