Missing him already

My son just left to go back to school a few minutes ago. He's got lots of work to get done, so he's headed back to hunker down in the library and get his papers and projects done. And I miss him already.

My relationship with my son is, in my opinion, pretty good. While I don't think that parents and kids should be "best friends," I must admit that we do share many of the same tastes and interests. We both like pointless, funny movies. If "My Cousin Vinny" or "Summer Rental" or "The Great Outdoors" or any other movie of this genre is on, we are parked in front of the tube, laughing our butts off. In the kitchen, he the best sous chef a mom could want. We have the same twisted sense of humor and laugh at the same jokes.

In a month he'll be home for the summer. And we'll kick off our shoes, grab a beverage and watch a movie. And I can't wait.
