I refuse to believe it.
There’s no way it can be true.
I mean look at me.
I’m just a kid myself.
So how is it possible, that today ….
I became the mother of not one, but two ADULT children?
But true. *sigh*
Child number two turned 18 today.
I’m excited for him.
He’s turning into a very mature, responsible, young adult. Which surprises me considering how immature, temperamental, and over-reactive he was as a child.
Having just graduated High School in May, he jumped right into a summer course at the local college. He also received a full scholarship after a little prodding from us to “get going!” on it.
He’s got a tough couple of years ahead of him, so I’m anxious to see how he handles it. But he surprises us daily, so I’m feeling pretty positive that he’ll handle it well.
As much as I would like to deny it, my babies are growing up.
And despite my efforts to try and screw them up, I think they’re turning into pretty good people.
I’m proud of you Joe Bloe! Happy Birthday!
