Moms...... Sheeesh?

When you cruise do your loved ones over worry?  We all love vacation.  Was on the phone with mom AGAIN.  She knows I'm very capable of taking care of myself.  Left home at 19 to serve the USA.  I'm sure we all have experienced a lot in life... I've worked in good jobs and bad jobs.. I've worked in the hood at 3 am worried about being robbed..ect ect.. Yet.. I still get the lecture from Mom.  Happy  it's nice but I got it already.  Do you get the speech?    This is a fun question by the way and travel related...

Nope, she just says have fun. Only time she worried about my travels is when I was in the Navy. Even when I went to Turkey in 2004 she wasn't worried.

Also when I was younger we travelled a lot. Either to Washington State or Japan. And when my dad was in the Navy we lived West Coast, East Coast, and Asia. And since I joined an airline I'm all over the place. So it's no big deal with her. She was only worried about me in the Navy since she didn't want me flying off to war which I almost did.

Yep! I just talked to my Mom and she thanked me for not cruising during hurricane season. She also told my my sister was on her way home from Glendo, WY (my sister has a trailer on Glendo Lake and spends many weekends there) so now she can stop worrying. She worries about any of us that are on the road or away from "home".

Yep, that's what Moms do. She always says to have a great time, but be careful.Happy

JC.. Yeah.. My dad never worried. Cared but not worried. He did the same as you back in the day. I just find it funny when I say mom..... I got it again and again... All good

Too funny; that's the exact same thing I still tell my sons. No matter how grown you are; you're still our babies; LOL. Cherish the moments... Happy

My dad told me "no matter how old you are, you'll always be my little girl". I was about 40 and going through a divorce. It was wonderful to hear those words at a low point in my life. So, like cucruizin said, cherish those moments.

To keep this cruise related, my folks only went on one cruise when my sister was working as the Purser, and they loved it. That was on the Vera Cruz, back in the mid to late 70s.

Sad to say both of our mothers have passed, so phone stays on airplane mode

Be happy she still cares about you, burger grease and all! (Have a great trip)

I can honestly say my mom worried about us cruising until the day she died, we were leaving 5/13 to head to Miami for the Vista on 5/14. Mom was worried about us going on the cruise until she passed the evening of the 12th.

Love ya mom, hold her tight, it is awesome that she cares about you Todd! I had to tell mom that we were fine that between the boys who were aged 20 and 21 and myself, we could repair most any damage to the ship and/or improve it or even build our own lifeboat and repel almost any attack by Pirates of the Caribbean. We would call home one time a day, $2 a minute from the stateroom to home was a small price to pay to get to talk to them at home. Even though mom was crying by the end of each call.
