It is official

My youngest is now 18, fully an adult by the numerical standard of age. She is in her senior year of high school and has doubled-up on the important classes so she can graduate next May. Bless her heart, school has always been difficult for her yet she tries and does as well as she can. Baby girl is a repetitive learner, meaning she has to do over and over etc. to get the hang of it and don’t vary the way or change the sequence. I love her so much and worry so much. She has done really well the last year and half in this small church school.

Why am I telling y’all this, cause my baby is E-I-G-H-T-E-E-N!

Need I really say anymore?

Yeah, I thought not.

I was just thinking, marveling, last night that my oldest has only six more years of school left, and only five years before he's 18 - SCARY!

Your baby looks so happy, and I know you are one proud mama. Congratulations to you both!

Quite a feeling of accomplishment isn't it, when the baby turns 18? My baby will be 35 come February and still amazes me that I have survived those many years with her at times! Hope you all have a great day celebrating this event.

Happy birthday to your daughter.

It gets hard to remember they can start making their own decision.

I loved it when they were young
I loved it when they were grown.
I loved it when they moved out.
I love it when they come home.
I love all the grandkids.
I'd love it even more if they,
could make a living on their own.
