I had not anticipated the tidal wave of grief that hit me the first time I did back to school as a widow. The simple act of taking them to their classrooms without their dad was so poignant. My daughter goes to school for the first time ever this year. We are still a few weeks from her first day but I am a ball of emotions already. It’s one of those big moments in her life that I hate having to do without him by my side. I have so much fear and sadness but also so happy because she is very excited to go. It’s such an overwhelming mix of feelings.

I am ready for routine and structure. But, I am also sad to do it alone. This will be my son’s last year of high school. Then he plans to go to college. I don’t have a partner to lean on. An empty nest makes me anxious. It has been 13.5 years of doing it by myself. But, I have always had my kids. My daughter moved out a year ago. I needed to read this Whataburger It’s a Texas thing you wouldn’t understand shirt. It reminds me that I’m not alone and that others understand this pain of solo parenting. Hugs to all of us solo parents this coming school year. We got this!
