AAAHHS, TEARS ‘N TATOOS FROM THE MOTHER- HOOD:)

Bittersweet kinda day today…Went to Luke’s school this morning since they wanted to take photos of him signing his letter of acceptance to Bucknell University which he’ll be attending in the fall and tears came to my eyes (and continue as i write this).

Though more then proud of him and that he’ll be going to a terrif school and for him, more importantly, he’ll be the king fish on their golf team, but for me it’s pretty black and white : My not so little boy is leaving the nest…As parents we always know someday our kids will leave…someday which seems soooo so far away. Then wham bam thank you mam the years go by and they’ve gone from diapers to departing for college…And, a flood of emotions and snapshots are unleashed…And, for me one shot came to mind of Luke and I sitting in an empty kiddie pool in our backyard, reading books and laughing that simple wonderful pure, special moment kinda laugh.

One pix worth 1000 words 🙂

Another thing came to mind too…I think i’ve shared i’m divorced but fortunately Luke’s dad and i have a terrific relationship (at least if you ask me, he might have a different take!) What I haven’t shared is that he’s an amazing lyricist who wooed me during our courtship with a song that to this day remains unfinished …hmmm 🙂  At any rate last Mother’s Day he and his partner wrote an amazing song “Motherhood“. It captured then and even more so now so many of the feelings I’m experiencing and I suspect many of you will relate no matter what your child’s age is .  And, yes have some hankies within reach cause it’s gonna pull at your heartstrings in a really good way.

And, now here he is all grown up, shaving, driving, towering over me, mom and dad no longer the only centers of his universe.  He does still on occasion hug me and tell me how much he appreciates and loves me without prodding nor when he needs money so long as none of his peers are around.  And, though he’ll probably want to disown me for saying this –every nite I still go into his room (if the door’s not closed and he’s facebooking all is buds) to give him a kiss good nite.

I know a lot of parents sorta look forward to their kids leaving .  And, though I won’t necessarily miss being overloaded with his laundry; searching for his bedroom floor since it’s covered in a meritage of clothes, shoes and stuff i prefer remain anonymous (much more pleasant way to describe it and makes me think of wine me not ‘whine’ about it LOL); nor his shouting ‘mom there’s nothinng in this house to eat’… I’m gonna miss Luke BIG time …To quote Agatha Christie  “A mother’s love for her child is like nothing else in the world”. I need not say more…

So exito stage right for moi …i’m done for now… Bird‘s gotta fly and so do i …actually I’m also leaving the nest and flying south but that’s another’s day blog!  Thanks for letting me ramble,  feel free to do so back.  And, here’s the signing pix with all and Dan Brown, Athletic Coach (standing behind me). Proud we all be!! But we miss Coach Aug mucho!!

Go Bucko! Missin' the kiddie pool 🙂

And, thanks H for Luke  and a song that is tatooed on my heart. xo

Spread the glove !

Oh yeah, also had my son’s girlfriend here this eve for the first time…never met here before and it’s sorta a strange cool feeling… She is terrific – makes me think of teenage days when i first entered the dating world though my mother would have never let me have a guy over for two reasons 1. he might make footprints on her pristine beige rug in the living room 2. no one in her mind was good  enough for me==DAMN good thing i spent 20K in therapy to get over that!! Another topic for another day when i’m not about to slip into dream world! Anyway, my one and only most adored son is 17 n off to college next year and fortunately he knows where  he’s going  since he’s an amazing golfer and Bucknell University swapped him up pronto…Thank ye gods for he and me we don’t have to wait months n indulge in too many dirty martinis to know he’s all set!  Forgive me if i boast but he’s worked sooooo hard and i am so proud of him and believe he will achieve whatever dream he goes after.. Any of those who have seniors know it’s a stressful year for all and not dealing with the angst of it is a beautiful thing though please note i am still enjoying a dirty martini LOL! Any how my  fellow housewives i’m gonna cut this short, thank u for sharing some ideas for Monday TODAY SHOW w/kathie lee n hoda. Tune in please! Now off to chill.  Keep sharing your amazing ideas here, tweet me at @accidentlhswife.com or facebook …Happy weekend!  Spread the glove…zzzzzzzzzzzz
