Fly little bird, fly...

Jordan went to his Commander's Call  for the Air Force yesterday and they have a job for him now, and he signed his contract.  He leaves on May 25.

 It's really surreal.  I haven't even really wrapped my head around the fact that he's leaving yet, but in just a few weeks it will be upon us.  My first little bird will be flying the nest.  Yeah, I know he's almost 19 but he will always be my little one.  :)  Boys always need their Momma too, no matter how old they are -- or so I'm told.

It really does seem like yesterday that I was...

birthing him in Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton, Ohio...

holding my precious little one wondering what life would hold for him, and for us...

then shortly after chasing him all around trying to keep him safe...

his Daddy bringing him safely down from McDonalds roof...

watching him learn to play the drums and become really good at it, exceptionally good...

seeing him graduate from high school...

helping him through many highs and lows over 18 years...

and questioning many times if he needed prescription drugs....or if I did!

The time is almost here for our little bird to fly.  He will earn his wings and do well, no doubt.  

So, Moms out there...have any of your precious ones flown the nest yet and if so, what lessons do you have for me to learn from you?  Do tell.   I don't like to learn things the hard way so please just tell me what I  need to know.
