On this day eighteen years ago, I was blessed with my second son and last child. Our life has been full of adventures and I’ve proudly watched him grow into the young man he is today. I am proud to know I had a piece of making such a good person who will go into this world and make differences in others.
Mason is so much like me – we are very similar! Our personalities collide as we are both strong minded and opinionated individuals. We both want what we want and that is it *Thankfully I’ve grown out of this mostly*.
This last year has been so full of great things… he worked and saved to buy his first car ~ he graduated High School ~ he joined the Army (leaves in a couple of weeks).
Now, also on this day it means that I am no longer legally responsible for anyone other than myself for the first time in 24.5 years! Yes, that’s right… I also no longer have to do “school shopping” or first day of school photos. I have completed that part in my life.
Now while there will still be a few kids at home, but they are all adults and I can focus more on me. Is that selfish? Nope, not one bit. I have given all I can give to raising my children and while I will continue to guide them in adulthood… my raising days are done.
Happy Birthday Mason, Mama will always love you.
Just a few photos to show his personality and charm.
