So, today is my oldest son's birthday....

and I won't get to see him today :( He is 19 and a freshman in college, first time I haven't spent his birthday with him. I sent him a card and money, a text this morning, and he will be home Tuesday evening for Thanksgiving break, but this growing up stuff is hard for moms! (Probably dads too).

But just think of how neat it will be on Tue. evening! Its just around the corner!!

By the way, I remember hitchhiking home from OU in Athens on a Tue, evening for Thanksgiving break in the 70s. Just my luck, the 2nd car to pick me up (between Jackson and Oak Hill on Rt. 93) had 2 guys in the back with a 12-pack and a shot gun, and they weren't hunters!

The next year, I had a ride lined up. Light bulb

Tuesday evening will be great! Thumbs up

No doubt this is much harder for Moms, at least on the outside. Dad's have to be the tough guys. My daughter is 19, but still lives with us as she goes to college. I'd be a mess if she didn't. Not on the outside, but a mess on the inside.

So glad you'll see him soon though.

Thanks! He has only been home twice since we dropped him off, so it has been an adjustment. I have done better than I thought I would, but I'm not sure about it being harder for moms...my husband has gone to see him three times for an afternoon.

DHart - no words!
