Son made me cry...

But for a good reason. There is not much the POS can do or say anymore to bring me to tears, but my children are my Achilles heel, as they are for the rest of you dedicated parents. DS20 was telling me about his new GF via text because he wanted me to know something about her up front (she's a single mother). I have no problem with that and said as much, along with my sage motherly advise not to rush into anything (he just got over a bad breakup). His response is what turned the waterworks on as the conversation veered toward the subject of the POS. DS20 wrote: "Have I told you lately that I love you?And it absolutely kills me what he [POS] did to you. It honestly does, and there are no words I could say to describe my remorse for you and what you are going through!"

My kids are now my life, and that statement made me cry like a baby. They are the only ones who can do that to me...but it is all good and I will turn into a waterfall for them any day!

ETA: Then he sends: "I love you so ever dearly mom and that much will never change. No matter who I'm with or where I am. I'll always be there for you. Always."

Well crap, I am a total blithering hot mess of tears now...

That made me cry, too.

I can only hope my boys do the same for me one day.

My screen's all blurry...

My DS15 has been awesome to me... He found out about my WH's A 6 months before I did. I know he's torn up about it all.

It is so good to read that your adult son "gets it" and will hopefully have learned the "right" lesson in all of this, so that we aren't passing down a bunch of FOO issues to our kids. I desperately hope that my boys will come out of this with the proper values and don't follow in their dad's footsteps.

Your son sounds just awesome. I'm pretty sure I will someday get a similar message from my awesome son(s). I hope to make them proud of the woman I am going to become!!!!

Good for him! It is so important to tell the ones we love that we do...more often than we think we are.

I'm also a blithering waterworks and he's not even my son!
