I’m sitting here reflecting and thinking about how much Justin has grown. He’s so independent and take ownership of his own learning. He cooks, cleans, and follows all the rules. Sometimes he doesn’t clean up after himself but thats typical teenager behavior. I can’t complain about my kid. I feel like I lucked up with a good kid.
Every year since Justin understood what birthdays were I would have someone in my family or his dad remind Justin it was my birthday. This year was the first year I didn’t have to have someone remind Justin that it was my birthday. He walked about his room, sat next to me on the couch, looked at me and said “Happy Birthday Mom” I smiled and said “You remembered, Thank you! He really made my dad. I never thought I’d see this day just like many other things he’s done that I’ve never thought I’d see. Grateful for the little things.
