We take tons of photos and cherish every day knowing they are but fleeting moments.

Your son will be fine at college, at least they have AC now.
My mother cried all the way home after they left me in a 100+ degree room on an August afternoon.

Hey, Loves! You know . . . it may be your son's b/day . . . but from one mom to another - it is really your big day.

I send my mom flowers on my b/day. She is the one who did all the work to get me here, LOL!!!

Yes, the years fly by . . . and I know exactly what you mean about wondering how you will watch him walk out that door and off to college . . .

It may be 19 years since you delivered that precious baby who is now so grown up - but "Congratulations" is still quite in order, I believe. :-)

I did not look at the author of this thread but the title did not interest me to look in lol due to certain things but

Congradulations on giving birth to a son who is also giving to the community.
My mom still likes to celebrate my birthday in which I try to not keep track of how old I am but I do know the year I was born and your thread proves my point I try to make with her over birthday that it really should not be the one who is birth celebrating but the one who put a new life in the world celebrating and your thread does just that.

I find this just fascinating, thanks for posting and HAPPY BIRTHDAY in advance! I am loving seeing some of our "more mature" Presby babies show up here

Oh, Loves, how many times have I told you that it's going to be OK. My oldest will be 39 August 11, the other is 35 and, believe it or not, I still cry when they leave! But, you know, as Sunny says, I know that they are giving back to the community - as is yours - and that makes it almost OK.

And don't worry about Z in NYC. You'll love visiting him and hearing about his adventures in that town which is sooo wonderful for young people. Besides now with LD telephone service what it is, it's not like it was when we left home and only talked to the family every once a month or so. The first time I left home for France I only talked to my family at Christmas and on my birthday in April. It's hard for me to believe given the fact that I speak to my kids now almost every day. Ma Bell may have her weaknesses, but she's certainly made life easier for us empty nesters.

The Girls Night Outers will take you out for a cosmo every night the week that he leaves. You won't even know he's gone ....maybe.
