Yeah, that's the byproduct of single parenting a son. They often take on the 'man of the house' persona, and it's easy to rely on them for the comfort that you give out in return. My son can be a rock like that as well.

I love your new design! I love Maddie's work. She's working on the new design for my dog blog.
Stopping by via Michele!
Love the design. In my next life I want to be a website designer. Here by way of Michelle's.
Had four sons. And they all love their momma. Even though they are grown and have families of their own.
love the new banner on top!
hello again from micheles.
WAIT A SECOND. I was here like a half hour ago and your site was totally different. Man, that was FAST redesigning. I like this new look. Love the puzzle pieces. Very cool.
Here via michele, but totally bamboozled by the change!
Omg, I LOVE your new layout! The puzzle pieces are your pictures...that is too cool.
Great post. My children have been my strenght for many years. I hate to imagine life with out them.
Hi...visiting via Michele.
What a nice mother/son post. The closeness between the two of you comes through strong. Savor these 10 year old memories with him, because all too soon he'll be 35, like my "baby."
I look to my children for strength at times when they have no idea when they are giving it to me! They are amazin aren't they?
Michele sent me!
I was really touched by today's post. I don't have children, but have always looked to my mom when there are hard decisions in my life.
Nice new design by the way!!!
Have a great weekend...
Anxiously I read your entry as my white rectangular coffee cup seemingly leered at me. I leaned it closer to the sudden realization that coffee cups can't leer... sorry, got carried away with your post.
I know the feeling. Like trying to figure out the subway and everyone darts to the machines for tickets - I have no idea how to buy one or for what location, etc. -- and it's not like you can take your time to make heads or tails of it b/c all these knuckleheads expect you to know what you are doin'
Life is ultimately about journeys large and small. You captured this one so beautifully - and in a way that should force all parents to do a double-take when they go anywhere with their own children. I know I will.
Love the new design, BTW.
I'm a recovering single mother trying desperately to see humor in my day to day toil while simultaneously avoiding reality as much as humanly possible.
