moving out

The stepson will move out soon to live on his own. Well, with his special someone, lol. The husband and I already talked about what we should let him bring and that includes his bedroom suit, the television and DVD player in his room, the printer we bought that we have not used (he can use this for school), and his personal things. He has quite a treasure here and we will let him have it all which means the husband will have to go to the truck rental place to rent a truck so they can haul everything in one trip. We have a trailer but I doubt if everything will fit. Besides, they have to get his girlfriend's things as well. The husband is already missing his son who happens to be his baby for a long time before I came into his life and gave birth to the little man. I understand his feeling but I told him he has to let his son go because he is of age and this is bound to happen. He talks about me being alone which does not really bother me. I know he feels better knowing his son is still living with us even if we seldom see him but him moving out will be a different case altogether. The stepson does not seem to worry about leaving his father though. Kids do tend to get weaned easier than the parents. I remember how my parents used to call me to visit home more often when I was in college even if it meant spending more of their hard earned money. I, on the other hand, wanted to spend more time with my friends. Well, I know the husband will get used to it. We still can visit anytime he wants and they do have phone where they can talk if they want to.

The same with my parents when I first moved out of our house to live near where I work :) I'm sure his dad will get used to it in no time.

I know he will get used to it but it will take some time for that to happen. The little man and I will try to make him occupied though :D

it's really so different there as it is here in the Philippines. moving out is really not the thing to do until one gets married. in fact, it's difficult for me to do it because i know my parents will feel slighted if i choose to.

Most parents here want their kids to be more independent so they let their kids go and live their own lives. Though there are parents like my husband who are not ready to give his son up yet :) he will eventually realize that his son is all grown up and needs his own space...
