He's a little ambiguous, too. As annoying as we are as parents, there appears to be some affection left and he's actually going to miss us, I think. We'll drive him down and get him set up in his new apartment before flying off to see his brother in Ohio where we will celebrate Son Number Two's 21st birthday, to my complete amazement. And then we will fly home to a collection of empty nests, including our own.
In this day of Face Book and Skype and cell phones it's not all that hard to keep in touch. And as we've established, I'm quite capable of taking out the garbage and cutting the grass myself. But I certainly will miss the muscular hugs from this grown man who traveled under my heart for 40 weeks and will dwell in it forever. Look out, world! Here he comes! And he's going to be SPECTACULAR!!!
