Today is my eldest son's 21st birthday!!! How is that possible? That I can have a son who is 21? Just wait until it happens to you and you will know what I mean...
Adam is home from Uni for the summer (Uni...that's Britspeak) and we are so enjoying having him here. He is alot of fun to go to the movies with, or go out to dinner with, or just to overhear him and his brother, laughing, upstairs when they are in the midst of a game of Super Smash Brothers or watching some anime. These years are so precious because I know that my time is limited. One of these days, he will be living in an apartment or house of his own, maybe in another state, and his visits will be small slices of his life and I will long for this time again. But one can't stop time from moving on, nor should we want it to stay static...how boring would that be?
We are going out to dinner with my MIL tonight, to celebrate. Then home for ice cream cake. Later, Adam and John and I will go out to a piano bar and have a legal drink with him. Since he has been at Uni in Scotland for a whole year, and their social life seems to revolve around the pub, this will not be a coming-of-age experience for him. Nonetheless, it will mark something special for us.
Happy Birthday, Honey!
