Nephew, Sister, SonMy oldest son turns 17 today, siiiiiiigh, it’s bittersweet. (I wrote this yesterday and had to keep change the wording today/tomorrow. I felt that if I pushed publish before his bday, it might not happen. Is it humility? Superstition? or am I just a goofball.)
For our bunch February/March is Birthday Season, between me and my sisters, our family has 5 birthdays in two weeks. We finally got wise and made it a one weekend deal. I even suggested going out for FroYo tonight instead of having more cake.
I am having a hard time with this birthday, I am so proud, humbled and thankful. And yet I am still anxious, worried and concerned. My own Dad was very eager for my 40th birthday last year, I think I understand now. As a parent the concern never turns off, like ever.
So yes, I’m a little unsettled today, but I wouldn’t change a thing. In fact, I think I deserve this little button found on etsy, I actually think it’d be even cuter if the Hubbs was wearing it.
