My oldest is about 2000 miles away at college. I was sooo sad for a few months but he calls all the time and gets to come home every now and then. I still miss him a lot but hearing about how well he is doing makes it all so much better. I wanted to guilt him into staying near home and I know he would have stayed if I flipped out. But that would not have been fair and terribly cruel to take advantage of him like that. I put my emotions aside and realized that we did a good job as his parents and didn't stand in his way. Of course I still worry but I wouldn't deny him this adventure of growing into his own person for anything. Everything will be ok Mama.

Every time , I have had two leave for college and miss them terribly.I don't get empty nest syndrome I get fewer in nest syndrome.It prepares you for the future.My oldest commissioned the day of college graduation and I truly believe all these steps helped us prepare for deployment.Cell phones are a blessing, mine would and do call while waiting for the shuttle or when bored till something better comes along LOL You have worked hard to get him here where he has a future plans in place...good job.He will stub his toe along the way but we all did and he will learn from that also.Enjoy your sucess.
just got to say my oldest comes back next week HAPPY DANCE HAPPY DANCE
