How cool that you get to spend some time with him and that he's wanting to hang out.

It really is!  Getting to know all of them as their adult selves has been exciting, interesting, and difficult: to realize that their lives are their own now, and my role is no longer central.  Unless of course they need advice, nagging, or cookies, and then I'm right there--except for the oldest who has a wife to handle that stuff (although he did leave me a message this morning with a cookie request).  I think it's taken some getting used to on their part, also, to see me as somebody other than "My Mom."  They are resigned to/good natured about my worrying about them for the rest of my life, I tell them it came with their owner's manual.
