All the Little Things Missed

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.
