My Heart Hurts a Little

So... My boy.. my little boy... is not so much a little boy anymore.
Today I took him on his first College Shopping trip. Now granted.... it was just the Junior College but all the same. It hit me like a Mack truck when I realized that we could be shopping for financial aid in as little as 30 months. Then it hit me even harder when he said on the way home " I can get my Medical Assistant degree from the Junior College, then I'll be old enough to join the Army and become a Medic and then when I get out I can use my GI Bill to go to St. Mary's School of Nursing"
When we went to pick up Tristen, I was standing beside Tom and realized... HE'S TALLER THAN ME. Holy moly. He wasn't taller than me last week! All his pants are also about 4 inches too short. He's like... a smallish man.
So on the way home.... he wanted to stop by the graveyard and drive the car. I said "Ok, if it isn't busy for the Easter holiday" Well, there were no cars there so I got out and let him drive. YES... I know this is illegal but we're on private property and all the people there are already dead, so there. It's the same graveyard where I learned to drive. He did GREAT, I mean really, really well. He's quite a driver for 12 years old! LOL
Oh well, just had to get that off my chest.
Oh Lord. I'm supposed to write a colon cleanse review. Thank the Lord I don't have to actually try it! But, should you need that product, please click the link!
