As i sit here at bedtime on my boys birthday contemplating my life I realize that the greatest treasures I have are my children. How did I ever raise this sweet baby boy? How am I old enough to be the mother to a 21 year old? I know I am old enough because i need reading glasses when i sit and take out my novel but time really does go by really fast. Its moments that seem slow-the crying, teething, the sickness. But the other moments- the fun, the parties, the laughing goes by much too fast. Enjoy your babies, enjoy every phase and stage as they each have something wonderful to offer. I am so proud that my son is in school and working, that he is confident, honest, reliable, independent, helpful, articulate, optimistic, strong and hard working. Be your child’s number one supporter no matter what our age. #sons #birthdays #optimism #happy #healthy #boystomen #children #goodtimes
Not the most *aesthetically* pleasing picture, but this is important! 😉 My oldest child now wears a Mens size 7 shoe. More like a 7.5 but I told him to hold his breath and suck it in (he still believes me when I say this shrinks his feet). He eats constantly, comes up with entirely valid comebacks, and when he stands on his tiptoes we see eye to eye and I. Am. Not. Ready. 😭 #parenthood #sons #motherhood
Thanks a lot Cristina! Now I want a son!
Honestly, I'm so thankful to the Lord that I get to share in these special moments with my family and friends. Moments like these help me to keep pushing forward through everything this life could throw at me.
Aaron, may the Lord continue to bless you, Mommy and Daddy 🙏🏽💌

This is from March of 2012 at my son's graduation from basic at Ft. Benning.
This one came downtown to have a drink with me after a really long work week. His maiden voyage at Tadich.
