Well, yesterday my oldest child (almost 21) called me at lunchtime from El Paso to ask me 'Mom, where was I born? What is the name of the hospital? On and on w/the 'OFFICIAL TYPE' questions. I said...are you at the courthouse or something? He said, 'yeah, I'm gettin' married right now!'. Of course being the mom, I said, 'are you sure you want to be with this girl for the REST of your life?' He was like,'of course mommy but I still love you!'. I said, 'ok, if you know what you're doing then you have my blessing'. 

So anyway, I have never met this girl. He has dated her for about 10 weeks. SHE just told me her name 2 days ago. He is on his way to Iraq in April so possibly this is him trying to get as much living done b4 he goes as he can b/c he is scared he might not come back! IDK but I will do my darndest to welcome her with open arms. (BUT...if she screws my son over and cheats and takes all his $ then that's it!!!!) Just needed to get that off my chest.

(Ok going to bed now......well in a few minutes!) Goodnight Ladies!

jumping to fast no offense but it'll be lucky if it lasts or if the girl DOESN"T cheat. esp. if she's not knowledge of military lifetstyle. its VERY common in the military.

And this is why...in my heart I am worried b/c she is a party girl who is 18 and LOVES to shop!
