As I look out the window today, I can see more snow.
Fortunately, it's melting as soon as it hits the ground.
And I'm happy about that.
The five inch snow we had weekend before last was fun. But I'm over it.
Of course, I shouldn't be surprised it's snowing. Eighteen years ago today it was snowing when I gave birth to my oldest son.
He's officially a man today.
It's a bittersweet feeling. On one hand, I'm happy that he's now an adult; leaving me scot-free of any responsibility, by law anyway, of any stupid stuff he does.
But as a man he's also responsible for making his own decisions...and that scares the crap out of me.
Fortunately, he's a good kid. And I think I've done a good job.
I'll keep my fingers crossed.
And as I send one into adulthood, I'm just getting started with another.
As I sit here and type, my one-year-old is creating havoc all through the house.
I was so anxious for her to walk. Now she is and I long for the days when she wasn't.
Not really but...
Well, time to put away the random thoughts....she's into something else.
I can't see her, but I know she is.
Because it's too quiet.
