My Son as soon as he got home from school and practice ate supper announces he is going to a friends house just as I see headlights coming down my driveway…hmm he planned that well . A new thing lately with asking or saying what he is doing while car lights appear…so I do the drill where are you going what are you doing and me finishing with becarefull and replies mother don’t worry ..did he just say that what are we good at as mothers worrying I told him you are my child I will always worry about you and your sister no matter how old you get. he just shrugs gives m that side smile and out the door he goes. I look at my husband and we just shake our heads I think back to when I was his age a sophomore was I like that? oh my yes I was the worry I must of put my mom through. she wouldn’t have admit it but I now realize when I stayed out a little to late to her liking the next time I wanted to go out it was a quick “NO” now we have good old texting, okay that doesn’t always work like when he has his cell volume down so he says … but if I do not hear from him believe me I will when I say call me or text me back or your grounded .. oh what we go through… so has I sit here writing this I’m waiting to see car lights come down my driveway. A mothers life is not always easy. It’s hard to let them go and know and hope they will make the right choices , we love our kid’s so much we do anything for them if we could .
