Well, as of late last night, it is official. My youngest son is engaged.

I have mixed feelings. As a mom, I am excited to see this next chapter in his life but at the same time, he's my baby and I'm sad because he will be leaving. Yes, they have to grow up, but I am closest to him and I will miss our long late night talks, laughing together, watching tv a movie or playing a game. His heart belongs to someone else. I will not be the 'special' girl in his life, she is. She will be there to comfort him, make plans with and share his dreams,goals and desires.

I like her and am excited about their future. But my mom heart is torn. He's my baby.

I knew it was coming and have been trying to prepare myself but it is hard. Anyone else struggle when their kids got engaged??


This is the ring. He did a good job. :-)

You will always be his mom and no one can ever replace the special bond you have. Accept her with the same loving mom type arms and your bond with him will be even stronger. Congratulations

Embrace your new daughter, enjoy his happiness.

Neither of mine are "engaged" but DD has lived with the boyfriend for over 3 years (they bought a house together). DS is the one that just got a job in Cali, girlfriend graduates in May and already has all her plans to move out to San Fran to be with him. When asked he says no engagement/marriage or serious relationship...huh.

She is a sweet girl and he loves her very much. I am happy for them. Just struggling with the thought of my kids growing up and moving on.

Congrats to the young couple!!!

My daughter did things bass-ackwards - she had 2 children, then got engaged to a different man, then got pregnant about 3 months later.  In August, it'll be 5 years that they've been engaged, and in August their little one will be 4, and in September, they are FINALLY getting married!!!!  Albeit, she needed these 5 years to grow up, and he needed them more!!!!!!

 yes Dawn it's hard that they grow up & leave us. But no matter how old they get, they always will be our babies no matter what. They always hold that special place in our heart. Again Congratulations.
