Leaving the second biggest love of my life....

(Second in sequence, not importance you understand.)

The first love of my life would be my dad....

But the biggest would be hubs. Even still....a dinosaur age later.

About 3 years after I married the biggest love of my life, along came the second biggest.

That would be my Bones. Back then his name would have been Fatty...not bones. He came into this world at a whooping 9'4. He slept through the night from day one....8 pm to 8 am. Funny, happy and a baby that thought everyone was his best friend.

He was rather handsome also. Very photogenic. Should have modeled that kid.

Today, my Bones is 20 years old. He has an apartment at the college he attends and has for 2 years now.

Even so.

Ya'll. I'm leaving my Bones behind and moving 18 hours away.

I'm leaving my first baby.

And I'm having a little bit of a freak-out tonight.

But, I am leaving behind a great young man. Still funny. Still friendly. Handsome if you like them pierced up.... LOL! Still handsome.

All the best to you, my son. I love you. I love the man you are becoming. I will miss your presence in our lives.

You know where to find me if you need me.


  1. Oh, that's tough. My sister went to Purdue when my parents were in NoVa. And I thought that was a tough drive.

  2. I can't even imagine how hard that would be. Praying for you, dear friend.

  3. I just had to add - you raised him well. He is a good kid and he will do fine. But I am not sure how much comfort those words would be if I were in your shoes. Hugs.

  4. Oh wow, that must be so hard. I can't even imagine how much you'll miss him.

  5. Too, too sad. Still praying...
    We miss y'all already!

  6. This was hard for me! My first baby was 9lb 4 oz too, and is growing up so fast.
    For some reason it suddenly hit home reading your post that they really do grow up and leave! I think I have been in denial.
    The nice thing is, when they grow up and leave, they also get drivers licenses, so they can come home again! He's not TOO far away. At least he is still in the same country - my sister moved to Australia when she turned 19.
