I'm going to hurt him (not really)

Mom had to go down to Florida for a family emergency and met up with M and HD when they came up from Tampa for the same thing. The kids couldn't get enough of her and didn't want to let her go when it came time to leave since it's been 4 yrs since they'd seen her. She talked about how proud she is of them and then she dropped a bombshell on me. HD has somehow decided to go into the Marines instead of the Air Force. This upsets me a great deal for some reason. All I could think to say is: 'I'm going to kick his scrawny ass when I see him.' and 'He's not made to be a Marine!' and 'He's still going to college, right?'

I know he's not my son, but he's been telling me for the last 4-5 years of his plans to go into the Air Force and to have this sudden change after he did his ASVAB (which he never did tell me how he did)... I'm just in shock. And a bit terrified since he's going in as infantry (but supposedly still have the job of Ground Force Liaison).

S posted this picture of Mom, HD and M earlier today. (My babies have grown so tall!)
