BabyBoy has been out of town since the day after Labor Day. His girl friend began classes at the University of South Florida in August and he went down there to visit with her, sleeping double in a single bed for several nights and then venturing over to the east coast of Florida to spend time with his father. He has not had fun there and went back to Tampa for a few days then went back to his father's, girlfriend in tow, this evening. We have spoken every few days, including today, then via text at other times.
About 15 minutes ago (via text) he said, "For real, I think I am going to marry this girl."
And I DID know that was in his head. He has been different toward her/about her/in his tone when speaking of her, BUT...
I want him to be happy, more than anything. And I do not think he means in 2010 OR 2011, but, WOW, mommy has been weeping since the message came in. He's my baby. My only baby. And this seems different from other girlfriends.
Please, please, let him be happy. And let him produce a girl.. so I can pass that doll on.
