My baby boy is off to college.

I'm making him french toast for his first day.

I think the photo of him with his pack would be cool...he wouldn't go for it, but it'd be cool :) French toast is good. Great Job Mom!

You can always use my favorite line. "I will always be your mommy, and you will always be my little boy." Now put on the back pack and let mommy take the darn picture. :O)

Even as adults, we like to mark their milestones. And starting college is a huge one! Congratulations to you Mom.

Did you offer to comb his hair and give him kisses too? Always works for mine, lol! NOT!

G'day Nancy ~ When they are little they pose without asking, get bigger not so much. Love the big boy school pics. Hope he enjoyed his lovely breakfast.

Have a beautiful summer day ~

What a special day....for him AND for you!

Winona said...

Yep, boys are that way. They just don't understand about their mom's blogs. LOL Good job on getting him raised to adulthood. Winona

Another milestone!! I think I was more nervous about the kids going off to college than they were themselves :)

Start counting the weeks to parent weekend!!

I would have offered to drive him to school, then give him a huge kiss as he gets out of the car, but don't forget the pet name you use just for him, and loud enough for everyone to hear:))

I think it is a great picture, just right for a college freshman. Anne is so correct. Everyone growing up so fast.

Have a super great day.
