slapout, hang in there, each phase is different and difficult in its own way and you will adjust to the "new normal" that comes with each of those phases.

I guess I was pretty vague on that last post!  My Sailor is in A school in GL & Yes, PIR was undoubtedly the top of the line experience!  I agree, the transformation was amazing & a source of great pride for me.  He is a DC & will graduate A school in August.  then he will get some leave time.  I guess I'm just still in a let-down frame of mind.  they don't write from A school & texting is not the same.  He sounds like he's a cross town at Wal-Mart or something! LOL  But every day is getting easier & august will be here soon enough.

lapout52; I felt the exact smae way when my son was in bc. I hardly left the house and thought that my world as I knew it was over. He is my only child, except for the dog! I'm proud to say I made it with the help of many great friends on this website. He PIRed 5/6 and is currently in A school.

Watching him go through PIR and seeing the way he carried himself in public made me realize that he's no longer "my little boy". He has grown into a fine young man and I'm one of many moms who is sooooo proud of their child!!! :) The Navy gets very high marks from me on my son's transformation in 8 weeks!!  So does my son, He worked very hard to get through bc, and we are so very proud of him.

I hope your planning on attending PIR. What an awesome event to be a part of!

Graduation is not until August and I'm just sad.  It is a roller  coaster thru basic & then you get caught up in PIR . . . I was not ready for this phase at all!  WHINE!!!  This is worse than post partum depression!  No it's the same.  I must be nuts.

My son just completeds PIR on June 3, 2011. He is gone to A School in SC. He doesn't have a phone yet so I'm not sure how to communicate with him. He is a Nuke and I am just wondering if there are any other Nuke families on here? I didn't know about this in time to meet up with the families the evening before graduation so I don't want to miss out on any more events.

oh good for you Jeff's Mom!!Do they have a big "to do" for the 4th over there? I'm glad you got to see him.
Comment by Jeffsmom1380 on June 6, 2011 at 5:47pm


Hi Renebo, I am very excited!  He just came home for the weekend.  He looks great!  I am going to see him on July 4th weekend!  Stay on base when you visit.  It is so much easier for our sailors!

Comment by Renebo on June 6, 2011 at 5:01pm
Jeff's mom, you must be so excited for him!
Aug/Sept is not far away!
