It’s definitely an eye-opening, and instant ageing, experience when you realize your children have become full-fledged adults!
Last year, I was blessed with a beautiful grandson – and my daughter (my first born) instantly became an adult in my eyes. She has had several tumultuous years and I really never thought she’d settle down and have a child. Well, she has become a beautiful, caring, loving mother to my amazing grandson, who will be 6 months in February! Where does the time go? So fast!!
And last night, much to my delight, my son proposed to his girlfriend, who is expecting their first baby in May! In less than a year, both of my children have become adults before my eyes. And while I’m sad to think that they will carry on with their lives and their families, with me in the background, I know I will always be part of their families.
My daughter will be 30 this year, and my son 29. I know they are not children anymore, but they will always be my babies. Even as adults, they will always be my babies.
I am so proud of both of them, for overcoming the difficulties that they have had, and coming out on the positive side of it. They still need their mom, and I will always be there for both of them. I’m just such a proud mom today – of two lovely adult children, one grandson and a granddaughter arriving in May, and a soon to be daughter-in-law too. Life has blessed me, as it has them.
