Today my boy is 17 years old!
Let me say that again. SEVENTEEN!
Where did all the time go?
Every year I say that we blinked and he grew up but it really is true.
He is almost a senior....almost an adult....making me an almost empty nester.
We will not be discussing his graduation or his upcoming move to Texas.
No we will not:(
We are making our way through all of the seasons of Survivor. We are almost finished with season 4 and I am loving every minute of it.
We go to the gym together.
We laugh a lot.
We talk about politics every single day.
He has been the easiest child and teenager to raise. We have been so lucky and so blessed to be given a son who has not been a minutes trouble. I have enjoyed being his mom and in the next year, he will be spreading his wings and leaving the nest.
I will be thinking a lot about that this year and preparing myself in the process.
But until then, I remember my one little word.....present.
Present in the moment and remembering that he was the best present I have ever received.
Happy Birthday Caden! I love you with all of my heart.
