It is Almost Wedding Time. . .

It is almost Wedding time. . .

It is hard to believe that the Wedding is only a month away. Seems like Sprat and Sweet G just got engaged. The plans are all coming together slowly but surely.

The Church is booked, reception and rehearsal venues are set and final walk throughs are scheduled. Waiting to hear on RSVP’s to finalize the head count.

I did finally get a dress, that was an arduous process. Trying on clothes used to be so much fun, now it seems more of a chore. Still need to decide on a dress for the rehearsal dinner and the last shower.

Everything is coming together. . . . for this Fairytale Wedding. . .

We Now Have a Senior in Our House

We have a college senior now. . .

Junior year is in the books and we now have a senior in college. Big T finished up strong with the Deans list for Spring semester. Drove up to Massachusetts to bring Big T home for the Summer. Very excited to have him home for a little bit, although he has lots of plans to visit his teammates and his brother.

So many emotions . . .

So many emotions right now: happy, sad, frustrated, excited, and hopeful. We are very excited for Big T as he transitions to his senior status. Just to clarify the frustration part of my emotions. Both of the boys frustrate me to no end when it comes to graduation. It does not matter if it is High School or College neither one wanted to go to their graduation ceremonies.

Having not attended my own college graduation, I insisted Sprat go to his. I had many regrets for not going to my graduation I did not want him to have the same. Big T is already trying to get out of his graduation from college. Sprat admitted after the fact that he was glad he went to graduation, he may have been shining me on a little.

Conclusion. . .

As a mom to two stubborn, bull headed boys it is my job to try and keep them from making the same mistakes I made. We all want to keep our kids from making our same mistakes. It is the most difficult thing to reason with tweens, teens, and twenty somethings that believe they know everything and think you got to be this old by being stupid.

Stay tuned for more pearls of wisdom from this crazy mother of two strong willed young men. . .
