My Pity Party. Wana Join????

FREAKING OUT....
Oh, yea I am freaking out.  It has been just one of those days that really anything could  put me over the edge....Now, I'm not at looney (Jill) just having a moment.
So here goes...
It has really just hint me pretty hard today that the oldest of the Hip boyz will be going off to  high school in August. I don't know why, today of all days but, today is the day...
To just FREAK OUT, PANIC, STOP BREATHING, STRESS-OUT, BREAK OUT IN HIVES, CRY, WORRY, SECOND GUESS MYSELF, WANT TO HOME SCHOOL (o.k. maybe not home school),CHECK OUT PRIVATE SCHOOLS AND DID I MENTION CRY....
I have been so fine with this, that is until today...What the heck, he was just a baby...and now he is going to be feed  to the sharks. What is a mother suppose to do??? I'm thinking that, I don't like this at all and that having older kids brings on a new world of worries. No more wondering if he is going to fall and hurt himself now just wondering if I have taught him everything so he won't fail or hurt himself?
And to top it off Hip Hubby is going to be gone for 5 days and I hate when he leaves....boo..hoo
Like really hate when he leaves (tears will be flowing tomorrow)
And I have to drive to Waco (by myself) with Kyle for a baseball tournament this weekend.
I am just really stressed-out......
Does anyone want to join my pity party????

Oh, sweetie, HUGS!!!! You are so allowed to have your moment and sorry Hip Hubby will be gone, I hate when Hubby has to go away! Have a very safe drive and yeah, my tween's bday was yesterday. It's hard...it's really hard...I remember her as this little vision in pink.

Girl... Let me get in on this pity party. I wish I could just go to Waco with you. If it was closer, I would. I can understand your stress right now with Cody heading to high school... it's a big step. I can assure you I'll be freaking out too when Eric gets there. Hell, I'm already freaking out that he's going to middle school next year! It's all going to be fine... hip hubby will be back before you know it. We'll be here in blogland in case you have any problems. Boy that probably really puts you at ease, right? Hang in there!

Here's an idea! Tomorrow night... let's all meet right back here on your blog with a glass of wine. We'll have a little "hubby out of town" get together. Let's say 9:00 p.m. Deal? :)

Oh Mal...I can reassure you that you HAVE taught your boys everything they need to know at this point, they are ALL GREAT kids and you're a great Mother to them, it will be fine, I promise you..JUst think of it as one step closer to Cody being such a successful business man and making you even more proud than you already are!!! Chin up..it will be ok, I promise call me if you need to vent

Party...Did you say PARTY? Girl, I am right there with you, I have been panicing about Alec driving for YEARS... he is still 2 years away, but can I say is ALL YOU PEOPLE OUT THERE... WATCH OUT. There, I have given you fair warning! The young Alec has been shaving for over 2 years now... that was my freakout point. The boy shaves more often than his Dad! :>) Chin up HipMomma!

I am so thankful BISD has 9th grade still at the Middle School because, even though she is going to be called a "freshman" I am convincing myself it is alright because she won't be at the high school yet. Seems like just the other day, you and I were pushing Cody and Emily in strollers up and down Cedar Canyon. As a matter of fact, I remember the first day I met you.. you were pushing him in a stroller (what he was about 3 days old?) and he was screaming his lungs out. We suffered through some serious insanity together and now our blood, sweat and tears are going to pay off. We've raised some incredible kids who need to spread their wings and live life!

Now, that was easy for me to say but let me tell you this.. It hit me HARD that Emily will be gone in 4 years the other night. At that same moment, that gut-wrenching song by Billy Ray Cyrus (Ready, Set, Don't Go) came on my radio. I lost it!! I mean driving down the road sobbing as loud as I can, barely able to see the road in front of me. I got up in the middle of the night that night and climbed into bed with her and cried some more. I think I will die the day she goes off to College (or at least need to be heavily medicated).

I'm feeling your pain, giving you a hug and will hold your hand through this if you will hold mine too. :) Love you! And yes, I am RSVP'ing to your Pity Party.

I'm dreading it, and my oldest is almost 8!!! I TRULY feel for you! I just remember how hard high school was and how I virtually didn't want anything to do w/my parents, and that makes me sad that my relationship w/my kids I know will change! Isn't it great to have the BLOGWORLD to go to just to vent and have this world of friends there for you in an instant! really cool! hang in there! you seem like you are EXTREMELY active parent & I think that goes a long way!!

Oh goodness! I'm 18 minutes late with my glass of wine!!!! That's what I get for actually cooking a meal! Lost track of time. How's it going, Mal?

My oldest son, Kyle will be starting jr. high next year and I'm in the same "freaking out" mode that you're in.

We can "pity party" together... in between games!

Drama Mama said...

My oldest will be in 7th grade- He goes to a very small school-kinda the equivalent of home school- So, I am not too worried now- However, the idea of him driving scares the beejeebies out of me!!!
I am always lookin for a good pity party- let me know when the next one is scheduled for!!!!I'll be there with bells on! :)
