Tracey, I KNOW that feeling so well....I've only got one of my three boys at home now (I'm already planning on what to do with is room when he goes too
)....It's good that he is so near, you'll be able to keep an eye on him, and it's gonna be SO convenient for him to pop in for some home made grub, and bring bundles of dirty washing for you to see to, coz mum always makes a much better job of the ironing
Seriously though, I KNOW you have a lump in your throat, and tomorrow, you will find that even though you promised yourself you wouldn't cry, somehow, a few tears will force their way into your eyeballs, and threaten to escape down your cheeks, as you wave your baby boy (they'll always be our babies!!) off into his first step into the 'grown up' world...SO..have your hanky ready, give him a big kiss, and always know, that the special bond we mothers have with our kids will never be broken, whether they move five minutes down the road, hundreds of miles away or even venture off to other continents...You are, and always will be his rock, the love you share is his anchor, and your home his safe harbour....Good luck, and be brave!!
