|Ok, mom, you can leave already!|
Well, two of them...
|Performing "I Love Trash" (Yes, he's dressed as a trash can)|
I think the moral of the story is that I was keeping them close because I was projecting my fears on them. I'm so glad I've never told them of my bad experience at camp because it may have influenced them. I have to loosen the apron strings and let them explore and experience on their own. It will not always be pleasant; sometimes it will be hard; sometimes it will hurt. As long as they know where heart and home is, I'll be here to wrap my loving wings around them until the next time they're ready to fly.
