Leaving the Nest

My big guy leaves town a big way.  It's a funny thing to realize that I've never been away from him for more than just a couple of days and he's never been more than three or so hours away.  And tomorrow I'll be dropping him off to fly about five states away.  Alone!  It's OK, I suppose, he is eighteen after all.  I've been just a little freaked out emotional today...I'm sure my family didn't notice a thing. 

Anyway, I had to check in with the big guy on the night before his big voyage.

Me:  "Are you ready?"

Big guy:  "No."

Me:  "I'm gonna miss you."

Big guy:  "Uh, OK."

Me:  Just sitting there looking at him with my big blinking eyes.

Big guy:  "I'm gonna miss you, too.  Now can you leave my room?"

Sigh...he's gonna miss me, too...and, yay, he'll be back in a week.
