Connecting moms in Polk County, Fla.
Ahhh the date is nearing! June 10-18th! My daughter Rylee and I flying to WA State for a week of non Floridian activities. :o) This includes a Vans Warped Tour trip in Auburn WA on June 15th, I am still a little scared about that. I am hoping that she will love this state as much as I did when I first visited in 2009. The difference in the atmosphere, the people and the scenery. She has never flown, and is excited about that as well, and I hope she retains that excitement on the LONG FLIGHT from Atlanta to Seattle! As she gets ready to enter high school in August, I am hoping that some "mommy daughter time" will be good for both of us, and give us a chance to talk and have fun, because I know things change once they get into high school, and I want to feel that she needs me for a little bit longer before I have to acknowledge that she is a young adult and doesn't need her mom as much as she used to, even though in the back of my mind I hope she thinks that she will always need me, and I know she knows that she can come to me about anything, open policy has been my motto from the start. But as I see them branching out, I worry that I won't have a spot like I used to when they were small. Maybe I am being selfish. I do want them to be independent, kind of. :o)
