Thursday Thirteen
Edition #29

13 things I'm going to miss my son saying when he's gone.

Everyone know that Matt will be leaving July 23 for boot camp. Here is my list of just a few things that I will miss hearing him say.

1. Mom, I love you! (my favorite)

2. Mom do I have any clean underwear? (did you put any in the wash)

3. Mom what's for supper? (always a hungry child)

4. Mom, you got any money? (why do I always get this question.... ;-)

5. Mom, can I borrow $20 till payday? (payday never gets here ;-)~ )

6. Mom, I love you! (still my favorite)

7. Mom, can I go to Justin's? (my best friends son)

8. Mom, just 5 more minutes, please. (this is what he says when he doesn't want to get up)

9. Mom, I'll clean my room in a minute... (I'm still waiting)

10. Mom, where's my socks? (where you put them)

11. Mom, will you go to the store and buy me a can of dip? (I had rather know he's doing this than him doing it behind my back. It could be worse.)

12. Mom, will you trim this hair off my neck? (he hates his hair long, won't have no problems with the military haircut. )

13. Mom, I love you! (the very best EVER)

I used to hold up the lines while they checked expiration dates on 'cans of dip' for my SIL... ;-) And the "I love you's" are the absolute BEST.


Blogger julie said ... (5/30/2007 10:44 PM) : 

Aww remember all these special things forever!


Blogger Qtpies7 said ... (5/31/2007 8:35 AM) : 

Awww! I know how hard that is going to be! My son is 17 and joining the Air Force, thankfully not this year, and the first few should be him in college with them paying for it.
My list will be things I DON'T miss, but will probably end up missing.


Blogger Kristin said ... (5/31/2007 8:39 AM) : 

What a great list! Please thank your son for his willingness to serve for me.

My list is up! Happy TT!



Blogger Toni said ... (5/31/2007 8:39 AM) : 

I like # 1,6 and 13- Congrats on him joining! When you get a chance check out my T13's!

...a can of dip. Like onion dip? LOL! This isn't a slang term is it. :)

Love ya. SMOOCH!


Blogger Dixiechick said ... (5/31/2007 8:58 AM) : 

Tug, yes the "I love yous" are the best! I'm going to truly miss them.

Julie, they are burned in my memory.

qtpies, Give your son a huge thank you from me. He is a brave young man. It's hard, but this is his choice. He will be 17 when he leaves and turn 18 in boot camp. Thanks for stopping by.

kristin, I will pass the word along to him. Thanks for stopping by.

toni, Thank you ... yes 1, 6 & 13 are my favorite too. Thanks for stopping by...


Blogger Matt-Man said ... (5/31/2007 8:59 AM) : 

Congrats on having such a great son (with a great name by the way) Good luck to him and dont cry TOO much when he is gone. Cheers!!


Blogger Dixiechick said ... (5/31/2007 9:00 AM) : 

Busy, nope not onion dip, tobacco dip... skoal, copenhagen, grizzly, etc... I guess you could call it slang... ;-)



Blogger Dixiechick said ... (5/31/2007 9:07 AM) : 

Matt, yup he is a great son. How did you know that I'll cry? ;-)


Blogger the108 said ... (5/31/2007 9:14 AM) : 

Awww.... before he leaves, you should have him record himself saying these things so you can hear them while he's gone...lol.


Blogger Lori said ... (5/31/2007 9:26 AM) : 

You made me miss my oldest son even more:( You never know how much until they are gone....


Blogger Linda said ... (5/31/2007 9:52 AM) : 

The good thing is that you'll still be able to hear "Mom, I love you" when he calls you from boot camp - which he will probably do as often as he can!


Blogger Dixiechick said ... (5/31/2007 10:19 AM) : 

Kyra, that's an excellent idea... I think I'll do that... Thanks!

Lori, I'm sorry... I already miss him and he's not gone yet. I can't even imagine what it's going to be like ;-)

Linda, I'm sure he will call every chance he gets... at least I hope he does... ;-)


Blogger Comedy + said ... (5/31/2007 10:29 AM) : 

Not participating in TT.

These sound right to me. My son did all the same things. So, nothing out of the ordinary here. Great walk down memory lane. Have a grand day! :)


Blogger amy said ... (5/31/2007 11:01 AM) : 

Hope you both do well during your seperation!!!

Nice list


Blogger Dixiechick said ... (5/31/2007 11:24 AM) : 

Comedy, saw that you weren't but absolutley loved your joke! I'm sure all teenagers say the same thing... ;-)

Thanks Amy ... it's going to be tough.

Blogger KarenW said ... (5/31/2007 12:13 PM) : 

What a sweet list! My only son is 16 and I'd like to keep him as long as I can.


Blogger Leighann said ... (5/31/2007 12:26 PM) : 

What a great list!


Blogger Travis said ... (5/31/2007 2:26 PM) : 

Think how special 1,6, and 13 are going to sound when you hear it on the phone or see him write it in a letter.

And after boot camp, you'll never hear 2,8,9, or 10 again!


Blogger Empress Bee (of the High Sea) said ... (5/31/2007 3:12 PM) : 

you are gonna' miss that boy honey!

smiles, bee


Blogger Sarge Charlie said ... (5/31/2007 6:13 PM) : 

hi dixie, I am up and about, the thing I know about your son is that you will miss him and you will be proud of him.....


Blogger JO said ... (5/31/2007 6:13 PM) : 

great list! I'm sure all mothers will feel this way when their kids go to camp or move away... we are just so used to being "needed"!


Blogger Bond said ... (5/31/2007 7:31 PM) : 

Dear friend...you will still hear him say all those things to you when he is gone....hey, have him record them all and then you can play when you want!



Blogger Turnbaby said ... (6/02/2007 10:15 AM) :
