Tonight is the first football game going into the playoffs. I am excited for the boys and nervous at the same time. As a parent I always want them to win, and if that happens it will advance them to the next level, if they loose this will be the last high school game I watch my youngest play, it’s such bittersweet memories. On the up side, it won’t be my last football game altogether, he already has offers from several colleges to play football at the college level.
I can’t believe how fast time has passed, in two weeks my oldest son will be 19. Where did the time go? The oldest was always homeschooled and graduated when he was 16. I am so proud of that boy, he left the house the day he turned 16 seeking employment, and didn’t come home till late that day with a job and they put him right to work there on the spot. Since then he has switched jobs, has a company vehicle, wonderful benefits and makes the wages of most people twice his age. I tease my boys often, thanking them for being such hardworking, compassionate and intelligent boys, I say that means they will put there momma up in a nice old age home some day.
I must be going through a mid life crisis lately. Nothing horrible, I just seem to cry at the drop of a hat (more than most) and get very overcome when I think of my kids moving forward in their lives. Before long it will be just hubby and I in the home and I won’t know what to do with myself. I am a mom who makes sure I am home whenever my kids are there. I cook and bake from scratch and am always available to listen. I so enjoy all my boys friend who hang at our house. It is nothing for me to be cooking for a gang of kids every night, it is so much fun listening to the chatter of 8 teens around the island while they help me prepare a meal. To bring myself out of my pity party I am working hard at starting a photography business, at this time it is mostly family, baby, and senior portraits. So stay tuned for my new photography blog coming out….dawncainphotography.com, I have the domain name purchased and am in the process of developing the website. Some day soon I will tell you the story about how both my boys became mine. Have a great weekend everyone, I am off to watch some football.
