My ds 17 and dd 15. It was ds going to the gp on his own that got to me. I am not ready for dd to be 16 she is very mature in many ways, but not in others ie not into make up, a bit of an Emma, looking after everyone else's relationships but doesn't seem to be interested in boys etc
I am exactly where you are, my DD 16 in Aug, I am struggling with the whole 6th form, GCSE, leaving school thing. Its all for older kids not my baby surely! I certainly don't feel old enough to have a child leaving school. Don't know about her but not sure I'm ready for this next transition
My DD1 will be 16 next Thursday and I am mourning where all the years have gone. My body knows I'm old enough but my brain is telling me that I'm not.
I have been very lucky with her after reading posts on here and haven't gone through half of what other people have and sometimes have to shake myself that she is not my little girl any more. (She will always be my baby iyswim)
Not after any advice per se but just feel that I don't know where the last 16 years have gone and am anxious for her future. She has started getting 'official' post i.e. her NI number which makes it all the more real.
