HAPPY GRADUATION RY!



I HAVEN'T BLOGGED IN AWHILE - NO EXCUSES BUT WANTED TO SHARE ONE OF THE REASONS WHY I HAVEN'T BEEN ON HERE RECENTLY.
MY OLDEST SON GRADUATED HIGH SCHOOL LAST WEEK.
YAY!
AND AT THE SAME TIME
OMGOSH!
I CANNOT BELIEVE HOW MUCH MY FIRST BABY GRADUATING IS AFFECTING ME.
I KNOW IT'S CLICHE BUT, IT REALLY DOES SEEM LIKE YESTERDAY WHEN I WAS HOLDING MY FIRST NEWBORN BABY IN MY ARMS.
7LBS OF ADORABLENESS.
LONG FINGERS & BROWN HAIR THAT CURLED JUST A BIT AFTER SMOOTHING IT
TINY LITTLE FEET, DIMPLES & THE SWEETEST LITTLE FACE
HE WAS SO BEAUTIFUL AND I WAS SO IN LOVE FROM THE FIRST SECOND

HE HAS GROWN AND CHANGED SO MUCH IN THE PAST 17 YEARS.
HE IS TALL, WITH LONG WAVY HAIR AND A DEFINITE 'MAN' BUILD NOW.
HIS SMILE IS WIDE AND HE HAS A CONFIDANT AIR ABOUT HIM.
HE IS LEAD SINGER AND GUITARIST IN HIS BAND & I GET SO MUCH JOY OUT OF WATCHING HIM PERFORM
EVEN IF THE MUSIC TOOK SOME GETTING USED TO WHEN HE DECIDED TO SING METAL.

HIS LONG FINGERS NOW PLAY THE STRINGS ON HIS GUITAR
HIS HAIR IS LONG, CURLS AND IS HARD TO SMOOTH
HIS FEET ARE BIG, BUT HE HAS THOSE CHARMING DIMPLES AND SWEET FACE

WHEN HE SMILES SOMETIMES, I SEE THAT LITTLE 3 YEAR OLD BOY SMILING AT ME.
RACING OUT TO DRIVE HIS TOY CARS AROUND THE YARD
PLAYING WITH HIS LEGOS, DINOSAURS AND TONKA TRUCKS & LEARNING THE NAMES OF THE UNITED STATES
AND BEING SO PROUD OF HIMSELF WHEN HE KNEW THEM ALL

MY HEART IS SO FULL OF PRIDE AND I AM SO EXCITED FOR HIM TO BE STARTING HIS LIFE OUT IN THE WORLD.
DISCOVERING WHO HE IS.
TRAVELING.
LIVING HIS LIFE.
BECOMING WHO HE WANTS TO BE.

SO, IT IS WITH PRIDE AND JOY AND LOVE THAT I AM SHOUTING TO THE WORLD

"WAY TO GO!
I'M SO PROUD OF YOU!
YOU DID IT!
GO MAKE YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE!"

BUT WITH JUST A WEE BIT OF BITTERSWEET MIXED IN WITH ALL THE LOVE
I LOVE YOU RY! GREAT JOB!
