little turkey

christian moved out today.
packed his backpack.
with plenty of socks mind you.
because i was a mean mom.
his exact words
"i need to leave!"
"im outta here!"
even though it stung and hurt a little bit
i watched quietly as he packed
asked where he was going.
didnt need to ask why,
he made it clear that i was a mean mom.
he said he was going to live at jacks house now.
i said ok.
and watched him get on his bike
and ride to jacks house.
i walked behind him so he couldnt see that
i was following him,
and texting jacks mom megan
letting her now that christian was movin in!
about 45 minutes later
jacks mom and dad pull up
and christian jumps out of the car
and runs to me.
gives me the biggest hug and tells me he loves me.
i told him i loved him too soooooo much.
and he said he was sorry.
im so glad that i have such wonderful people
around us that my son wants to run away too :)
and that they will take time with him
and talk to him and love him,
so that he will jump out of their car
totally happy and content.

I remember doing that when I was little... but the only thing in my back pack was a box of cap'n crunch. I wish I lived close enough for Christain to run away to my house!

Reminds me of when I was a kid, my brother Jed used to get upset and try to run-a-way! Sad thing is my older brothers would egg it on and help him pack! : (
