sailing toward an empty nest

my first born love his first minute

My son, my oldest child, the one who made me a mother, the one who we tried all our parenting tactics on and decided if they were stupid or not, the one I use to hold and gaze into his eyes and couldn't believe he was mine, the one I use to hold and cuddle because I was in awe of him, the one who taught me how to change diapers, how to make bottles, the one who showed me what what truly loving someone unconditionally means, is joining the Navy TODAY.

Today we are driving to Atlanta to see him get sworn in, Mr. B. is doing the swearing in- in his uniform- they will be so cute together! I'll get lots of pics, but let me ask you this my friends... WHEN DID MY SON GROW INTO A MAN?

sigh..... does this mean I'm old?

(my son would tell you I was old because I bought a halloween sweater for my dog yesterday)

*sniffle, sniffle* :( I know you're proud. I'm proud of him too (in the never met him before, non-creepy, one mom to another mom way). ;) He'll be in my prayers every day, Ash.
