Monday MOM Musings

This week (Thursday) my eldest child turns 16. SIXTEEN, people! I have mixed emotions about this and by mixed I mean 3% excited for him and 97% FREAKING out. I sense this year brings many changes for him. He’s on the verge of driving…in a car…by himself- without me to put my arm across him at a hard stop. I mean, I GUESS I can trust the seat belt without me assisting.

Didn’t this just happen?

He just barely learned to ride a bike!

A man. Ready to drive, get a job, finish high school. He’s sweet and sensitive and talented and I’m so proud to be his mom.

Freaked, nonetheless, but proud.

Love you, buddy! Happy Birthday! ~ Mom

    I remember him running across the courtyard at school to give me a hug. Talk about old-person affirmation. Happy Birthday, young man! And Happy Birth-day, mommy!
