Tony’s Blog — You’re Gonna Miss This

IMG_1840One of the most bittersweet parts of being a parent, for me anyway, is watching my kids get older & knowing I won’t get the time with them I really want. I’m happy for them & proud of what they’re accomplishing, but hearing them make holiday plans that don’t include coming to see me still stings. The good news is, I have Meredith with me for the foreseeable future & it’s a pleasure to get that time, knowing she too will soon be out on her own. I know the “empty nest” is a normal part of raising children, but I guess I didn’t know how hard it would be to face. Parents of young kids, take the wisdom of those of us who have already done what you’re doing to heart: Relish every moment. As Trace Adkins says, “You’re gonna miss this.”
