Celebrating Women for the Real World



The thought that my baby is now 18 totally floors me in so may ways. I can’t believe that the time went by so fast. I can’t believe that I didn’t kill him throughout the years. I can’t believe that you can love someone so much yet want to hurt them sometimes. He is no longer my kid, my child, my baby; he is a man.

By all accounts he was an easy child to raise. Yes we had our challenges and obstacles, but he mostly has made good choices and learned from the mistakes.

He is my son and I love him but what has surprised me is the fact that I really like the person that he has become throughout the years. I enjoy talking to him and learning about his take on the world. Though part of me is a little sad that this era is coming to an end, I’m excited about the next part that life has for him.

Happy Birthday G2!
May you find your purpose and happiness in your adulthood.
I love you,

On an other note:

    How can we take it back when it hasn’t exactly left us yet? They are forecasting SNOW for Wednesday.

    Happy Birthday to G2 and congrats on the Eagle Scout! Our son is 17 and still working on his Eagle. Keeping our fingers crossed it all comes together! And hoping I don’t kill him before he gets to Senior year next year!

    That has to be the best feeling – realizing that not only do you love your kids, because, well, they are your kid, but if you met them, you’d actually just really like them too. 🙂

    Happy B-day G2! I swear if I was younger…

    I’m tired of my Boyfriend saying “you think it’s cold in Houston…well in Dallas it’s blah blah blah…”. Let’s send it back to him…and have it follow him around for awhile.

    Happy Birthday G2!

    Isn’t it scary how fast the time passes. I remember Meg as a baby and she’ll be 17 on Sunday. Last week I was thinking “I can’t have a *17* year old” I don’t feel that old at all. Plus is scares me that she’s getting all growed up 🙂
