That’s me today.
I’m shocked! ~my son is turning 17 in just a few short days.
I’m baffled, I’m electrified. I’m energized. I’m in a whirlwind. I’m in a state of denial and disbelief.
I’m in a frenzy to get rid of Christmas and get ready to make a birthday celebration!
In less than 2 years he’ll be gone. College bound ( I hope!)
I’m a birthday fairy. I believe that just about everything in life should be celebrated. ( I know I blogged about this before…)
I decorate the house for birthdays. I allow the birthday child to pick their favorite foods for at least a week. I spoil them as rotten as I can and as much as they will allow.
So today that’s me.^ In disbelief. Spinning. Shocked..
If I could give some advice to all my friends who are still lucky enough to have those tiny voices and tiny hands at home it would be to slow it down. To not wish it away. Though I know there are days that you feel drag on forever, realize that they, too will be gone before you know it.
Wondering about his future. Incredibly grateful for our past together.
And so very happy that he came into my life. (*not pictured)
