Temporary Return to the Nest

Guess who's home for a visit?

It's good to have him around for a few days.  To hear his stories and see how he's doing and . . . well. . . take care of him again!

College suits him.  He's having a great time and managing well in a new environment.  But it's still nice to be able to spoil him a little bit!  You know. . . doing his laundry. . .

"re-stocking" his stuff . . .

He'll be around 'til Tuesday.  I didn't realize how much I missed him. . .

Actual shopping experience:  Brian and I went to the mall to get him some new jeans, etc.  At one store, we saw a mom and her absolutely miserable, eye-rolling son.  The kid looked like he was in typical middle school agony. . . you know, shopping IN PUBLIC with his mom.  He was skulking about, trying to look cool and not-in-any-way-WITH-his-mother.  Behind us in line to check out, Brian overheard the mom say, "See?  HE shops with his mom!"  (Meaning. . . Brian.)  Brian got such a kick out of it!  I wanted to turn to the beleagured mom and assure her that . . . it'll be okay again. . . once he turns 18. . . just hang in there!

Haha, because Brian was the eye-roller just a couple of years ago, himself! Isn't it great when they swing on by for a few days? Enjoy!

Marilyn

Ah yes. The years when Mom & Dad are so unbearable! And then when they get into college they WANT to shop with Mom & Dad so they won't have to pay. :)

Enjoy the long weekend!

The house seems extra quiet though when they leave again.

Sara

Enjoy your week-end with him around - and it doesn't matter if you spoil him! That's what moms do best!

 Michelle

and oh you are SO right!!!! We had parent weekend this past weekend and it was WONDERFUL having an 18 yr. old that totally appreciated every damn thing we put in the cart at Walmart!!! Enjoy your short few days with your son.... He's a Keeper!!!
