Fly away

I put the heir to the throne on a plane bound for Mexico yesterday. It felt strange, like someone was cutting off my left arm. I think it will grow back someday.

He'll be gone for about a month, and I'm sure he'll have the time of his life working at a surf camp. Now I'm regretting that we've kept him so sheltered. But I guess its time for him to break free of our cocoon and fly away. Fingers crossed that he won't go too far away.

I miss him already. But after I clean out his disgusting room, and even more disgusting car, I'll get back to you on where I am emotionally.


  1. Awe, sweet and sad at the same time. Think he's worrying about you? Ha! Rex is going to have such a great time in Mexico!! And he will be back home before you know it. Still...

  2. I know what you mean about keeping them sheltered. I often wonder if we've done that with our youngest. I suppose the'll survive just fine without us. And if they get in a pickle, there's always cell phones. I don't look forward to seeing our youngest leave though. I keep telling him he can live with us forever. Sure Mom..
    Good luck with the car and room cleanups.

  3. If you're REALLY REALLY lucky you'll only have to clean that room and car this one time.

    Have a blast, neph! Be safe!

    Happy, Waggin' Tails, FUREVER!
