Ok. It is almost official. I will have the title “Grown-Up Mom”.
You asked why is it almost? I don’t believe it is official until all the kids are graduated from college.
College Boy is really, really close. He will probably graduate in May.
My handsome College Boy.
That is why I am almost a “Grown-Up Mom”.
Grown up Mom!
Yep! That’s me!
I have it figured out now—the “mom thing”!
Can we roll back the tapes and start over? There are a few things I would like to change along the way.
Isn’t she cute?! My baby girl!
Wait to be a grandparent?
Travel the world?
Start a new career? Go back to school? Loose that Ten Pounds? (There is that Ten Pounds again!)
Enjoy more girlfriend time and really treasure the friendships.
Give back. Teach Sunday School classes to pay back all the hours my kids were enriched in Sunday School awhile I enjoyed my peaceful time sitting in the pews at church.
Take up a new hobby. Write a blog?!!
They say the sky is the limit. They say this can be the best years of my life. They say you have done your job raising your kids. Who in the heck is THEY SAY?!
I say, “I LOVED BEING A MOM.”
I say, “I LOVED LEARNING AND GROWING AND SHARING WITH MY CHILDREN.”
I say being a Mom is the best feeling; the feeling of being needed; the feeling of being wanted; the feeling of knowing that the outcome of the day with the family all depends on MOM!
I say being a Mom has been the best years of my life!
I say I am not sure I am going to embrace the title “Grown-Up Mom” easily. It is going to take some adjusting. For now, I am going to do all the kicking and screaming. I am going to hold on to that Mom title as long as I can.
Reality is that kicking and screaming won’t get me anywhere….
So I move on in life….
Looking for the next door(s)…
Thankful for all the years I got to wear the Mom title.
Moving on to the next chapter titled “Grown-Up Mom”.
I will do my best to embrace it! I will! (Pout! Pout!)
