My son is shipping out in less than a week - on Monday, December 1! I am so excited for him, and so proud! Are there any other moms out there with sons/daughters with the same ship date? I would love to connect!
Congratulations to you and your son! It will be an amazing journey for both of you.
Thanks, Sukie! So excited.
I'm sending #2 son off on Dec.7. #1 is a Nuke and has been in for 2 years. I was a total basket case w/ #1, but this time I'm just excited for him.
We are in Texas. Yes, I imagine they might be together?? Let's stay connected. It's a whole new world!
Yes, Vickie360 -- let's stay in touch too! :)
Oh, Dawn - I understand! I have had my melt-down moments too. They are going off to do amazing things and they are so focused and proud - so we need to be, too! :) They are tears of pride for me, and a little of the unknown - but I think back to when I was his age and how ready I was to conquer the world, too. This is their time - and our love and support is always going to be in their back pocket -- our kids know that! :)
I just can't believe how fast this last 5 months have gone! And hoping that the next 2 months will go by even faster!
I certainly agree....time flies! But I know your son is probably *really* ready to move into this next step. I know mine is!!
My recruit left on the first and reported yesterday the 2nd. We got the 10 second phone call at 1:30 last night.
