My notatallababyanymoresuddenlyhe's11 year old is at the airport as we speak, checking in for his flight to the US. It's his first time flying alone (Jay got permission to stay with him until he's at the gate, then the airline will escort him to NY, through customs, etc. there, then on to the NY-Boston shuttle until my parents meet him in Boston), he's practically vibrating he's so excited. On the agenda are one-on-one time with the grandparents, a week at sleepaway camp, and all sorts of other adventures before Maya and I join him later this month.
Gee, do you think he's happy about the idea? It's kind of hard to tell ;)...Seriously, he is SO ready for this, and his utter joy at getting to do it does a mama's heart good, even if we're going to miss him like crazy.
