...good bye to the boy
Austin turned 18 at 11:56 this morning. In fact my mom & Frankie bet lunch when Austin would enter the world-Frankie said before noon, my mom said after.
Mom bought lunch.
I had a good cry this morning. I couldn't help it. I even knew I would. It basically came down to celebrating the arrival of a legal adult and mourning the little boy I've lost. I hugged this little boy lost tight, tight, tight this morning & whispered in his ear, "you have my heart" & he whispered back,
"and I have yours."
Last night we celebrated with Austin's squadron.
Normally I wouldn't post photos that were less than perfect-
but i-phone shots were all we had time for
and that's that.
Tonight, I cook the legal adult his favorite dinner and got his favorite ice cream for dessert.
As for me, I could use a paper bag to breathe in!
Happy (I can't believe my baby is 18) Snapping!
