Back to School Night is the important night for any helicopter parent. I am a helicopter parent. Since I am an army mom and wife, I have learned to be a parent who hovers over their children. Tonight, I had to step it up and attend Back to School Night without my husband. “Mom” and “Dad” are wrapped into one around me- being present in my children’s lives. Please don’t think I am a bitter, but it is bitter-sweet living this life without a Dad’s present. My husband always says to our daughter, “I will miss you when you are grown.” In a blink of an eye, she will be all grown up very soon.

I am a mom of three. I am also an army wife. With that being said, I live the army life of taking the bull by the horns and supporting my kids in every way I can. I was a teacher for nine years, and I had to stop teaching to be present for my autistic son. Now, I'm obtaining certification for to become a copywriter because I need a position that is home-based and flexible. Anyway, I'm living life to the fullest as enjoying every moment. I'm also smiling at every cute and poignant moment with my trio of three kids. View all posts by experientialwriter
