If I keep repeating it, it will work. I won't stress eat, right?
My almost 13 year old is flying solo tomorrow. Not solo as in has a tag and someone keeps tabs on him and makes sure he gets on the right connecting flight. Completely solo. He thinks it will be a grand adventure. I'm wondering if he'll get stranded in Denver. Wonder how many times I can call him during his layover (just an hour, we'll not talk about the 3ish hour one on his way back home yet) before he starts ignoring me. Leaving me to worry he's stuffed in a trash can or has his nose buried in a book and missed his boarding call.
He confided in me yesterday morning that he's stressed about it. He said the same thing last night to his stepdad. I know he's super excited to go see his dad, stepmom and little bro & sis. But, this flying alone thing is for the birds. 16 is a good age. He's still only 12 for 2ish more months.
This is where deep breathing works, right?
BTW- I know he'll be fine. It's just he's my one and only. This is a first. On his first day of middle school I emailed his 1st period teacher to be sure he got there. I'm a little protective.... but not horribly so... just a little so...
