Today I took my daughter to get her permit and signed her up for driving class. And one thing that I realize is that I don’t think my daughter is ready to be completely independent on her own. I still have to tell her to clean her room, have you applied for this school and stuff like that. I don’t think she realizes that she is going to have to learn to do things without my help. Yes I’m mom and I will do anything for my kids but I have to let her grow up and learn to be independent on her own. I see now that this part might take some time and I’m okay with that because it’s nice to be needed. But I do have to let her go so she can grow into the women I know that she can be.
