It seems like it was just yesterday that I became a mom for the first time. However, almost 18 years have passed since that has happened. It still seems so unreal that my baby is almost grown.
Meet Robert–17 years old
Robert is on the verge of turning 18 in just a few months. It is still so surreal in the fact that I have a grown man for a son. It scares me, but I know we have done all that we can as parents to raise a Godly child.
Yes– he is a lover of video games, Sonic the Hedgehog, and all things Superhero! He has a heart of gold and loves to serve God in any capacity he can. He has always been one of those teens that tries hard, and loves to help people out whenever he can. He is currently trying to decide what he wants to do when he graduates school. He has one year to make up his mind. Hopefully whatever he chooses will be the work that God wants him to do.
Meet Kayla-age 14
Kayla is pretty much my sidekick! She cooks with me, shops with me, walks with me, encourages me to keep on track with my weight loss — even when I want to give up!
She has her momma’s temper, loves animals with a passion, and is definitely got an eye for photography! She is a superhero freak who loves Spiderman and Batman the most She adores God more than life and does her absolute best when it comes to school.
The older they get, the more I learn that they are not growing up to leave the nest, but the new era of being friends with my children will begin. It’s a scary thought, but one that I know God will use to draw us closer.
