Have you ever gotten homesick? I can’t say that I ever have . . but then, I’m a pretty independant person. Always have been – even as a kid.
My daughter was invited to spend the night at Grandma’s house tonight. Her cousin, Kiley, was also invited. They were all going to hang out and do girlie things all night long. At around 8pm – Kiley got homesick and called her mom because she wanted to go home. And she did.
My daughter called me to tell me this. I asked her if she was homesick, too? She says, “Me? No way – I never am.”
I wasn’t quite sure how to take that. If I should be happy that she’s independant enough to be fine away from home? Or if she never misses home for even a second while she is away?
Ok – so she’s 13 and her cousin Kiley is 9 – – there is an age difference there. But I don’t think my daughter has ever been homesick a day in her life.
Good? Or bad?
I’m really trying not to take this personally.
