Mom is no match for new daughter at Marine's homecoming


last updated: September 06, 2007 08:27:21 AM

Bonnie Bise of Modesto traveled to Twentynine Palms to welcome her Marine son home on Aug. 24.
Cpl. Christopher Alexander, 21, was coming home from Iraq, where he had been stationed in Fallujah.
Bise had it planned so she could get an early hug. She had Grandpa, Patrick Alexander, hold 6-month-old Riley Alexander, the baby Christopher had never seen.
"I figured if he saw the baby, I'd never get a kiss," Bise said. The best laid plans of grandma went for naught. "
