😭😢😩 PLEASE HELP BABY LEAVING ME

My oldest child (who is 18) is leaving for college in less than four weeks. She’s moving to live on-campus about three hours north of here. I just had a baby too! (Past July). I have a 17 year old, an 8 year old, and a 1-month old at home. Am I supposed to feel too sad about this or am I overreacting since it’s just a few hours north (Santa Barbara)? Has anybody been through this?
