Yes, we're taking off to PhDland to visit Vince. He'll be 23 tomorrow. Who knew the time would go so fast? Who knew a time would come when I wouldn't see him everyday or kiss him every night? Who knew a time would come when I would have to drive for hours just to see his magic eyes? Who knew I'd have a son who would be so much fun and so, so smart?
Wasn't it just yesterday that Carmen hoisted me in the car to cart me off to St. Clair Hospital to finally hold our son and begin our life as parents? I could swear it was! According to my calculations, we'll be about an hour outside of PhDland right around the same time we hit the road 23 years ago....with me in labor, sitting in the passenger seat of our little grey Omni. Funny thing....I wasn't quite sure if it was labor or a bad case of indigestion (since I had just polished off a Pub&Pizza pizza!). When I think back, I have no idea why I was so confused about it. I was already 2 weeks overdue. What did I think was happening? For more on the story....you can check out my post from last year....
23 years later....I'll be sitting in the passenger seat again....of another grey vehicle. A bigger one this time. Thankfully, I won't be as big (as I was 23 years ago!). But, I'll be just as anxious to hold my son.
On the road again......see you next week!
