    Cool Would this make me a bad mom???

    I feel kind of bad but at the same time I'm seriously happy ... my son came home from the recruiters office today and told me he had once again talked to them about his leave date and they gave what is for him bad news, and for me is a whewwww I have more time!! He found out today he will be leaving in January instead of next month in November. He isn't happy at all he wants to leave next month so for me to be relieved and happy makes me feel like a bad mom!!! So this Thanksgiving and Birthday and Christmas I am going to go ALL out because I know for sure I won't get to spend many more with him. I can't help but be happy but I'm keeping it inside don't want to rock the boat

    No not a bad mom, just a mom. They are always our babies no matter how old they are.

    January, February and March might be brutally cold on Parris Island but at least he won't have to deal with the sand fleas. My son went to Fort Leonard Wood in November. You don't know cold until you've seen MO in the winter!

    You just want to keep him home safe with you for a little while longer. Believe me, I understand that. It's what makes you a GREAT mom

    For me, her name was Abby

    Your welcome, I totally understand how you feel, my kids are 30 and 32, definitely not kids anymore. My daughter has a 5 year old son, my Grandson. You are always a mom, and I don't think you ever stop worrying or loving them as a mom, I think it's part of the job title, and not something we can turn off. My mom has 5 of us, and we always know we can go to her for anything, to talk, advice, a hug, and TLC when you don't feel well. There's nothing like your mom. I like having that relationship with her, my sister and I always end up crawling into her King size bed just to talk, or watch TV, my 3 brothers and dad always laugh at us. Whenever there is a family gathering they always know where to find us. Lol. I am close to my kids as well as my niece and nephew, my sister and I have always treated each others kids like they were our own, and they grew up together. They are 30, 32, 26, and 19 now. Now my brothers who are all younger have started having children, I have 2 four year old nieces, 2 four year old nephews, they are all 2 months apart, a 10 month nephew, and a 5 year old grandson. 6 kids under the age of 5 , we are having so much fun with them, and I hope they all grow up close together.

    wow that awesome that your family is so close!!! I'm really close to my dad and step-mom but my mom and I don't have a very good relationship, my brother was always her favorite and she didn't try to hide it!

    I'm sorry to hear that, but am glad that you have your dad and stepmom in your life to talk to and lean on. Are you close to your brother? Just stay close to your son, and be his mom, keep the doors of communication open, hug him every chance you have , I'm a total hugger, and so is my family. Always be there for each other, and you can never go wrong, telling your kids you love them everyday.

    my mom and brother are a lot alike, they say mean hurtful things without caring how it affects others so I don't spend much time with them at all ... but I do have my dad and step-mom and of course I have my wonderful son, he and I are very close and have a great relationship! We never leave the house or hang up the phone without saying we love each other and with as much as my son loves and I do mean LOVES to tease and torment me I know he loves his mommy!!

    @2BullyMama - thank you and I'm going to make a big deal of Thanksgiving, his Birthday on Dec 8th and Christmas ... going to go all out this year!! and enjoy every minute of time I have with him.
