My son, Navy is 33 today
Wow, where does the time go? It seems like it wasn't that long ago when I gave birth to my youngest 33 years ago. I texted him and asked him to stop by on his way home from work, to get his "gift."
What do you get for a 33-year-old these days? I guess it's different if it is a son or a daughter and whether they are single or married. He's single but in a serious committed relationship.
I just got him a card to one of his favorite restaurants. He can take his girl and celebrate his day. I'll stay home alone tonight - and remember.
My mom brainwashed me years ago: A son is a son, till he takes a wife but a daughter is a daughter the rest of your life." So, what do I get? Three sons! I've been dreading this all my life. Sure, I don't get to see him like I used to. Seems we can never just be alone - the girlfriend is always with him. I try not to dwell on it. I figure if I make a big issue out of it, the less of him I will see. I just want him to be happy.
I did get to see him this weekend - his girlfriend, brought home a 10-week old kitten named Ed. She texted me, telling me I was going to be a Grandma. I lost consciousness for a few seconds and then read it again - saying it was a cat. She did the same thing to her mother! They dropped by to pick up some spare items for their kitten that I had. My husband even told them, he planned to drop by to see his Grand-kitten sometime this week.
I do miss him. He does still give me these awesome hugs and he always tells me he loves me. Not ashamed of that, whatsoever!
So Happy Birthday to my baby boy. My baby, he'll always be!
