I think E was about a year old in this picture which means I was 20. He is currently 22 so he is 2 years older than me in this picture and that is TOTALLY freaky. I’ve been torturing myself lately with old pictures of him as he is just two months from graduating from college. He is getting a degree in Mass Communications and if you are located anywhere closer to me than Brooklyn and are hiring – PLEASE HIRE MY KID.
Because right now his plan is to head to Brooklyn where he has found a bedroom to sublet for the summer and he hopes to find enough opportunities to make money that he can find another apartment with other friends at the end of the summer. Either way – it looks like he’s heading towards New York, at least for a little while.
I think he’s way braver than that girl in the photo above who had a baby at 19.
He told me I’d have to come visit and I told him that only if he held my hand the whole way because I’m terrified of traveling and big cities and people, so a trip to NYC might actually kill me.
And I know he belongs some place bigger than Huntsville, AL. I think I was just hoping he’d settle on something like Nashville.
My heart is not ready. It’s a good thing I have so many friends with kids spread out around the country because I’m going to need some Mama Bird therapy after my Baby flies away.
