I don't know - He is the centre of my world and I'd walk on water for him

Just don't tell him that - I'd hate for him to take advantage!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay, no more wine for me tonight!!!
are you on a mission to upset me?

that was beautiful! i guess there is nothing like a mother's love. *sobs uncontrolably* LOL!

My dad used to say Life goes by like a hummingbird flying. He was right.My kids are almost as tall as I.They are in school,1st and 2nd grade.My daughter is Miss Independant to the point it drives me insane.Its hard to step back and let them become young people.

Maureen, I'm with you on the not liking kids thing. It just seems funny that when you have your own little one, you know his/her cry on a full playground. I'm sure the Dragons are more fun, but heavens be moved if one hurts your child. My son is 27 and is 6'2" and I defend him today if someone says something wrong about him. Just yesterday he was learning to walk, ride his tricycle and then bike. We colored together and while his father was overseas (missing everything) he started school and brought all his pictures home for me to put on the refrigerator. Halloween's, Christmases, birthdays, the first dance, car, and such. Where did my baby go. They grow up so fast and in a blink of an eye they are all grown up and I am so old (not!). I think that is one reason why I work with High School kids. It's fun to watch them go from being freshman (froshman) to their senior year in High School. The changes in appearance and thoughts. I still get pictures drawn for me and every now and then one of them puts a special treat on my desk. I know that dads go through something like this too, but moms are so much more emotional. I'm here for ya Maureen, and congrats on your son starting the University.
