How Quickly They Grow

I find it a little incredible how quickly the time passes and life changes. This is My Baby, yes you heard that right. He is only 14 and the last of my 3 kids under my roof. I must say it's been quite the adventure with him. We have had many ups and downs. We went from a family of five, to just the two of us drastically, when he was only 9. Kids are resilient.  I must say I am very proud of the man he is becoming even without having his father in his life.  He is a Freshman and a very dedicated football player. He is Strong and I admire him for that.  

I am by no means perfect, but I do my very best. I have learned some things along the way. A very good example was this long hair fad that is happening with these teenagers today. It's not how I imagined him when he was grown. I fought it, I cried, I didn't want it, but in the end I gave in. (I know I know worst thing ever) But let me tell you I ended up at a training at work, go figure...that really put the situation into perspective. I still don't love it, but I can accept it and I think he's handsome..Crazy Hair and all. At the end of the day our job as parents is to care for them protect them and guide them in the right direction. They will become whoever they choose to BE. 

I want him to know how much I love him and that I Will always be here for him. He is such a grown young man...yes folks that is facial hair ;) he's gonna grow a beard too.   

Life gets busy with a full-time job, Football Mom duties, and trying to Live not just Survive...therefore the Lack of Blogposts. I'm Sorryish ;) Happy Sunday!!!
