Raising humans that are just like you is hard.
One of the greatest things about being a mom to a 16 year old high school sophomore and 18 year old college freshman is seeing how much they are learning about life.
It hasn’t been easy by any means but the conversations that we are able to have now just makes me more proud.
They are asking questions. They are learning about life. They struggle. They are stubborn but independent.
During the times where I feel like I have failed, they remind me how I haven’t.
I still call them by their nicknames and although they cringe, I look at the them and just smile.
Thank you God for keeping me here on Earth to continue to see them grow and develop even when I want to kick their ass.
This is 43 with teens and I love it. .
