Have you seen my son?

He answers to Matt, Matthew, Matt-man, and most affectionately.. Matty.

Only a few months have gone by since I swaddled and rocked him to sleep, smelling his sweet baby scent.

I believe it was just last week, we registered for Kindergarten and then came home and snuggled together on the couch with a 4pc Happy Meal that filled his tummy to the brim .

Just a few days ago, he couldn’t pronounce his “R” sounds and I was his Valentine.  

And it was just yesterday that he graduated 8th grade and was ready for High School.

Now there is a young man residing here, who answers to all the names listed above, but he is a whole head taller than me, shaves every day, eats every meal like it was his last and pronounces his R’s just fine. He has a hysterical sense of humor and is  great role model to the younger ones of the household.

But this handsome young man can’t be my Matty

although he does sit fairly close to me on the couch, and he does end a phone call to me with an I love you….

On second thought, I think I will hang on to this special, caring young man..as long as he will let me 🙂

My oldest son is a sophomore (gasp) and in the JROTC program.  We never could have imagined how much he would have enjoyed it! It is his passion. He loves Football, likes Lacrosse, but he is passionate about Drill Team. So, needless to say we were on pins and needles waiting at Parent’s Night to see if he would get the promotion he has been working so hard for. Getting this is a very big deal..he only received an application by invitation only, had to write a full page essay, have all of his academic teachers approval, parents approval..and he would skip a rank to get there!!!

As a proud Mama, I am happy to introduce to you………….

Chief Petty Officer
