I have been very vague about changes. The resets in my life as well as for my family. I left the details because I didn't feel it served any purpose.
So what is the purpose of this post? Well, the changes and resets I speak of didn't only happened to me but to W.
While I was in this realm of twilight zone, W grew up. While my eyes fixed on other things in life, my son matured.
I haven't micromanaged his everything for the last two months and the world hasn't ended as I thought it would.
He proved me wrong by staying strong when I was not.
He proved me wrong by doing well in school without me checking his work.
He proved me wrong by being proactive in all his responsibilities.
This doesn't mean I won't be there for him every step of the way. I will be.
I just never thought I'd see the day when I could picture him growing onto his own without things falling apart. So I am stepping back a little to give him some space.
Well, I'm stepping back v......e.....r.....y little. I said I was confident, I didn't say I was going stop being a mom.
