Day 5 - Countdown to 21

Well tomorrow is it.. Tomorrow my first born is hitting that all important mile stone and I will be the mother of a 21 year old. I am way to young to be the mother of a 21 year old. (am so not going to explain this picture.. but He is the tall one on the left)

It is a bittersweet moment when you realize that you have done your job as a mother. I mean face it we know we have done our jobs correctly when they walk away.. become independent and don't need us anymore. This young man was born independent, he has always listened to his own council and is remarkably self assured. I know I did something right because he honestly doesn't care what others think of him. I must admit I am more than a bit envious of this trait as I personally need constant validation from just about everyone.

I am contemplating waking him up tomorrow at 6:44am just to say happy birthday, I mean face it he woke me up... grins..


  1. Hi there! I found your blog while "doing the drop" with Entrecard, and I enjoyed reading your posts about your son and daughters. I have a son that is 15and he is also in marching band(trombone). I find alot of blogs about young mothers and their babies/toddlers, and I enjoy those, but it is always fun to find someone who is parenting teens and older. You have "been there" with your son, and I am just basically starting the high school and beyond years. :)

  2. They grow up so fast don't they!
