We are all packed up and ready for a whirlwind trip to Wisconsin. We are celebrating my MIL's life on Saturday afternoon. We leave this evening and return early on Sunday. Wow, I had forgotten how much stuff you have to pack for a two year old. On top of clothes and diapers, blankets and strollers we need his walker. Not many two year old's travel with a walker. We had to get a court order so we can take Little Buddy out of the state. He is not officially ours yet, that happens later this month or in early June. I believe we will be in Wisconsin about 39 hours, that is a fast trip. We leave early on Mother's Day, and I am leaving Mr. 20 year old at the airport. We fly home and he flies to Columbus to go back and train with his team. Wah!!!!!
It is just as well I do not have time to dwell on things this Mother's Day. With both my MIL and Mother passing away recently it is going to be a tough day. I am blessed to have spent this time with Mr. 20, he is turning out to be a wonderful young man. He still needs time to cook a bit, but I am hopeful for his future.
My Teenager turned 17 yesterday, where has the time gone? He is such an amazing young man, quiet and shy but made of all the right things. He doesn't give me much to worry about. He is doing well in school, studies and never ever stays out late. He would rather be home playing Xbox with his friends. We are getting ready to look into colleges for him. Yikes, once again I have to say time is flying much too fast.
I am now a Mother of four, of course I have to include Max. And while I am sad the mother figures in my life have departed I am happy they are at peace.
I wish you all a wonderful weekend and a Happy Mother's Day. You may or may not be a Mother but by caring for others you are mothering, so I wish you a wonderful, peaceful day on Sunday and a lovely weekend.
Wish Little Buddy luck on his first plane ride.
