Today is my oldest son Joseph's 20th birthday. 20 years. I've been a mom for 2 decades.
I don't even know what to write about this. I've been struggling with accepting my age for the last year or so. How did I get to be 45? Mentally, I don't feel much older than 30. How can my son be almost legally an adult? He was just a little boy the other day.
I don't want to have any more kids, but I miss having babies. I see the cutest toys and clothes in the stores and I wish I had someone to buy them for. And DON'T YOU DARE say anything about GRANDCHILDREN!!! I'm having a hard enough time with 3 of my 4 kids being teen+.
I am proud and pleased to be Joseph's mother. He is a good person. He has a big heart. And he is incredibly talented. I pray with all my heart that he will have another fantastic 20 years.
Happy Birthday Joseph!
