Boot camp

Posted By: Sandra Morales 10-09-10

My baby and only son left to boot camp on Sept 20th. As a single mother I struggled to raise my son and daughter to have goals in life, and to be responsible. Well now that I'm getting what I asked for....why do I wish he was back in kindergarten??? I think of him and miss him so much. I can't wait to see him at his graduation.

My daughter left two weeks ago, I find myself looking at her picture in the hallway of when she was two years of age quite frequently. I almost feel like I should being going through boot camp for her, but I know she will be all the better by doing it herself. Go for it Kara!

My son also left Sept. 20th and is at Parris Island. I know that feeling well. He is my only child living. Sometimes it's hard to breathe. I'm sure you gave him a good foundation and lots of love to take with him. I am so proud of my son for becoming the young man he wants to be, and am thankful to watch him grow, as I know you must be too. Graduation can't come soon enough! My prayers are with you and your son.

My son left on 09/13/10 and I feel the same way that you do. I am so proud but I am also a mom that loves to take care of my children and I to wish he was back in Kindergarten.
My son is in San Diego and I have gotten several letters which i am thankful for but wish he could call!
My prayers are with you and your son.

Your message really pulled at my heart strings. My son left yesterday, but it still feels like he is here. I can't accept that I won't see him for sooo long. I always loved for him to "make his mamma proud" - now I just want him at the dinner table again.
