Letters to Boot Camp Boy


Not going lie.... I miss Boot Camp Boy more than anything I've ever missed in my whole entire life. I got his official Marine Corp address last week and I've ALREADY sent him five letters.

OMG!

Why, YES! I am *in fact* THAT mom.

Embarrassingly positive, stupidly funny, will send you a million letters even though you haven't sent a single one.

You get letters like this...

Hi [Boot Camp Boy]!

I saw a little red truck at the red light today and I immediately thought of you. I do miss you so much, but it'll be ok. The guy in the red truck was picking his nose like he was digging for gold and he caught me staring at him. I pointed at my nose and he looked away, wrinkling his nose at .

Super funny!

I dropped the Wonder Twins off with [other] mom last night.... It's going be weird not having any at for the next week. I hope Tilly is for the challenge as she will be my foster until I pick [your sister] back next week.

Poor Tilly!

I was looking at the Matrix yesterday while Chris was in my office and I saw that it was a haircut day.... He filled in the wonderful experiences that go along with haircut day. Burning hot clippers, 40 second hair cut, a quarter or a half.... I've been wracking my brain trying figure out what you look like with no hair but I just can't do it! Only 10 short weeks go until I get see you again with that fantastic hair cut!! I got your form letter from the Drill Instructor yesterday and I was happy to see your graduation is now listed as September 10th instead of September th. While I know it will only be a brief visit, I am SO looking forward your graduation and being able see you once again.

I already have my towel to wave for your company during that part of the graduation. I'm going to support you in any way that I can!!

You just remember this when I'm old and feeble...... I'd better be in the Taj Mahal of nursing homes! Your sister is going to try to put me in a cardboard box on the corner if you let her.

Don't let her!

Taj Mahal!!

I know I already said this, but I miss you so much. I am SO proud of you and you are currently one of my main topics of conversation with EVERYONE! You are always on our minds and we are supporting you in any way we can!

Which currently is with a 3rd Battalion walking challenge. We're all tracking our miles walked because the goal is "walk Parris Island". I'm 1,065 miles from Parris Island! That's a lot of walking!

I've decided today's picture will be a picture of your favorite people in the world..... Your family.

This way you can show your recruit family your crazy real world family.

Love,
Mom


So far the only letter I've received from him was written when he was in quarantine so the real fun hadn't started yet.

I don't know if I'm prepared to hear about the real fun.....

I'm so proud! But I miss him so, so much. I wasn't ready for him to leave yet.

    Quoting pagancountrygirl:
    I bet he's thrilled to get letters from you and hear about your day to day life. Reminds him of what's going on in the world outside of his enforced confinement. I'm sure he's bonding with his fellow recruits, but you're still his family and familiar world.
    A cardboard box may not be as bad as it sounds. It could be the basement. Dank, dark. Maybe mice. Definitely spiders. And a door that can be locked. No escape. At least there's a possibility of escape from the box! lol
Yikes! Spiders, mice, and locked doors..... Definitely choose the cardboard box over that too. Lol

    Quoting citizen4722:
    He's missing his hair and no doubt missing you too!
I know he's feeling homesick, he's never been away from home this long. I just want him to know he's still a part of our lives even when he's not physically with us.

    you shouldn't knock the cardboard retirement home, there are some quality boxes out there. And some corners can be more entertaining than TV.
Perhaps it it were corrugated cardboard.....
