My girls-

I love my girls.
Love my boys too!
However, there is a definite benefit to having daughters in a male dominated family-
Built. In. Allies.
My three sons and husband prefer movies that involve tons of car chases, sci fi, and... violence.
My girls?
We can watch you tube videos of reunited army vets and their family or pets all night( tissues included) or Bridesmaids for the umpteenth time.
Lana Del Ray on Pandora- Check!
Chilled white wine- check!
Look thru old pics, watch old home movies, or read baby books- check!

When I worry about my sixteen-year-old son and EVERYTHING he does and EVERYWHERE he goes?
My husband and my two sons scoff, shrug, wink and laugh with each other...
My daughters knowingly shake their heads in agreement with me and rub my arm to comfort me.
They, like me, text him to be careful.

We are kindred souls.
And now-
One is off to college and the other has... gulp... left to live in NYC.
I will miss them both so much.
On the other hand, because I love them so much?
I am so happy and excited for them! I can't wait to hear about their adventures and experiences.
A whole new chapter...
