my military baby!

don't worry, they are going to promptly shave his head as soon as he arrives and don't worry, I'll post a picture.... :)

Believe it or not…. I’m about to drop my baby off at military school for his high school years. I keep saying it out loud, I keep telling people- I may be convincing myself, I’m not sure. I just keep saying it…. Military school, military school, military school…..

My baby Kid3 will be joining the elite at New Mexico Military Institute as of August 5th. He is so excited, and so are we. It’s a different kind of goodbye when you are telling your child goodbye for school, it’s sad but knowing he’ll be happy and it’s the best education around gives Mr. B. and I a peace of mind.

Kid3 IS and will always be my baby, he was thought to be our last baby and we cherished every moment with him. He was the cuddliest, softest, easiest going most loving little person I had ever met. He is still so kind and just exactly what I want my little boy to be. He’s always amazed me with his ability to quietly understand people; it’s a rare quality in a young boy.

My sweet sweet kid3, you cannot know how I adore you, you cannot know how I'll miss you and you could never wrap your mind around how proud you make me. You take my breath away, you always have, I'll love you forever and I can't wait to see you in November! (I'll let you drink ALL the monsters and eat ALL the twix you want............. maybe)

NOOOOOOOO! Not the hair!!!! Oh, gosh, I can't even begin to imagine how much you guys are going to miss him, but it sounds like a fabulous opportunity.
