I am the mother of a teenager.
I'm not quite sure how that happened. One minute he was sleeping in the crook of my arm and the next he's eating me out of house and home and wearing bigger shoes than me. I am so proud of the young man my son is becoming. He is smart and funny, inquisitive and creative, clever and silly. He has a sweet smile, sparkly eyes and the longest eyelashes I've ever seen. He's compassionate and kind and I'll always be his biggest fan.
Happy Birthday J. I'm honored to be your mom.
