My life is far from perfect! I have four children that are between the ages of 18 years old (Dear Lord) He is never wrong!!! I don’t think he believes anything I say! If I say it, it must be completely incorrect. 15 years old (yay, another teenager) He is sweet as Pie, most of the time. Except when he has decided to do something that he isn’t suppose to do. Like rewire the electric, or take apart my washing machine!!! I think he doesn’t understand the fact that he need schooling for these types of projects. 8 years old (who thinks he should be treated exactly like his teenage brothers) Not going to happen! He’s my picky one! He doesn’t like to be cold, he doesnt’ like to be hot, he doesnt’ like most foods. He will not eat any fruits!!The only veggie he eats is corn. Oh and No hamburger at all! (the texture is wrong) Lastly at 6 years old, my daughter (who thinks she is 16 already) She is so mouthy! The way she picks on her older brothers is relentless. And I gotta say she doesn’t seem to mind telling me what to do occasionally!
But……… I’m so glad they are strong-willed independent children and one adult. Because I know they will do Ok. They will be fine when it comes time to let them go. This year my 18-year-old is leaving for college. He going far, far away. which is just what he wanted. To be own his own on his own terms. I’m learning to let go. No, I don’t want too! I don’t worry that he’ll be hurt or that he won’t be able to manage. I just know how much I’m going to miss him. His funny wit and silly comebacks. He has always been able to make me laugh. He’s a good kid. But it feels like I’m losing a part of myself. I love you, Son! I hope your journey is awesome!!
