I shouldnt feel guilty about it I know but I think there is a sadness that your once dependent little boy doesnt really need you anymore.
The room will be empty as he will take everything. It would be silly to leave it empty.
He is so loud and difficult with the rest of the family sometimes so I wont miss that. Especially dinner time. DH works nights so just DS (15) and DD (2) and me. So peaceful.
It is that little character that I watch in old videos and that mate I had through the single parent years that is gone now. It is accepting that your kids DO grow up. Now I have tears.
