YES!! We were cleaning his room the other day and packing some stuff up and I lost it...mine leaves in 2 wks
That is so normal. You don't say how old your son is but my son did the same when he was leaving for college. I heard from all the moms who's sons were moving on they did the same thing. I think it is a young mans way of growing up and telling himself he can make it and indeed must make it with or without mom. They get over it and will soon be appreciative of mom again.
He's 23. Went to college for a year and a half, worked some. However, the job market here is awful. He then decided that he wanted to join the Navy. He is ready to go and looking forward to it. I know that this is a good thing for him. After all, that is what we raise them for, to leave home, right? It still doesn't make it easy though. He leaves on Monday, March 10th. His dad and I are sooo proud of him.

You are so right, michelle! That's what my parents told me when I was trying to be a tough cookie about my son not wanting me at his swearing in ceremony at MEPS. My son still doesn't actually admit that he misses me, but I did get a boot camp graduation invitation, pictures, and phone calls at each phase.
Today I did. It's alittle over 6 weeks before he leaves...........I don't know. Im so just I dont knowish..........yaknow......lol
Join the group, DEP-Leavin for bootcamp in April. You will meet others with loved ones leaving 04/22/2014 or that week who may be in the same TG and have PIR together.
My son just left a few hours ago, and for the last week he hardly left the house. But it is usually normal for anyone who is leaving to pull away, also for the ones who are being left behind to pull away.
