Damn! Make me cry too woman! Geeshmehgah!!

Give the boy a hug from this NC Mom. He's gonna shine!! Be excited for him and gulp, gulp, gulp. Swallow till you get home, then let it all out girl!

Such a heartwarming photo there, MPM! He won't know how you really feel on this day for years to come. One day, out of the blue, he'll walk up behind you and tell you he loves you for no apparent reason and your heart will melt.
Savor this moment for he is embarking on such a wonderful journey of life.
((((((MPM)))))))

Not worried at all. You'll all do fine. And he will come spend the weekend with you once in a while at your home in Mathews, and so will I.

I'm a day or two behind on visiting my blisters, but I have to say, your baby boy grew up, but you still look the same...with a different "do".
