My Fourth Fledgeling
It's bittersweet when my little birdies leave the nest.
I mean, he's not little, exactly. He's taller than me.
But it's a really big world out there, and sending him off into it is hard. Especially when I won't be able to just pick up the phone and text him or call him any time I want. For the next 13 weeks, he belongs exclusively to the Marine Corps.
He's my Sammers. He makes me laugh like nobody else.
He also makes me a little bit crazy like nobody else. We're cleaning out his room to prepare it for the next occupant, and Paul found a partially eaten peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
Boot camp is going to change him. He'll learn and grow and mature. But he'll always be my baby.
