Kids Overseas

Why is it I think of all my kids as.....well, kids?  Some of them are actually adults now.  I acknowledge that, but still, they are my kids.  Sorry kids.

Sarah in Italy....

Tasha in Afghanistan.....

Sarah I get to pick up August 7th.  I am looking forward to seeing her.  I know that she is on a growing experience and I appreciate the pictures that TMI posts.

Tasha, I won't get to see until Novemberish.  If you know military then you know that there is not an exact date and if there was I wouldn't tell you.  Tasha says that she is going to stay with us until she decides what she is going to do.  She is torn between two different places.  One of them is Charleston, which I hope she picks since Jason is there.  She is such a mover that I suspect she will be with us for a total of 3 weeks tops.

It is such a strange thing when your kids grow up. They start to have lives and experiences separate from you.  I love travelling with my kids and showing them new things.  When they go off to strange new places without me I feel......left out, excited for their new opportunities, unneeded, worried, happy for them.  Obviously I am a conflicted mom.  Any other moms feel this way out there?


  1. A wonderful family!
    Even though my girls are adults, they will always be my little kids!

    Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting! Hope to see you again!

  2. My children are grown up. My grandsons - most of them are grown up too. They are still my children. I am the only one who calls boys. I tell them , they will be boys to me. My foster children still call me to, even they are over forty.
