Bursting with pride!


My eldest has just embarked on a business venture with his best friend. Those two are inseparable and I’m learning now, are a good influence for each other.

My eldest is the kind of kid who hatches a plan, puts the wheels in motion,  and won’t divulge an ounce of information until he sees the fruits of his labor are paying off. Perhaps his reasons for secrecy are to not ‘jinx it’ by saying too much too soon,  or simply to avoid the embarrassment of failure,  or both. But what ever his reason,  I see so much of myself in him and I can’t help but be proud of my first born.

He’s an awesome kid,  but at age 20, I guess it’s more appropriate to say,  a splendid young man. I love his brain and his ability to think things through clearly. I love his tenacity and his will to make his mark. I love his calm demeanor — curbing his enthusiasm for the final hour when victory is in hand. I love his ability to understand that anything worth having is worth working and waiting for.

He has a good head on his shoulders. I see so much promise in him. He’s my first born: the child of my youth,  the first grandchild to my parents,  the first imprint of myself to the bloodline of my family.

In his quest to find himself, to make his mark on the world, to find his destiny, to leave his legacy,  I see a fearless,  adventurous, and wonderful human being who is a gift to the world.

To my first born,  may you be the man you hope to be and may you always know, how proud I am of you and that I love you unconditionally.

Your (sappy) Mom.

    1. I will expand in another post. He’ll kill me if I speak of it now. 😁

      He and his friend have been friends since the beginning of high school. They’ve stuck to each other and avoided the bad influences. They’ve never been the kids to get into tons of trouble. And now they’re working on starting a business.

    1. Thank you. I always praise their efforts. I always need them to know the only way to succeed is to try, and try, and try. Effort + follow through = victory


    1. Ahhh, yes I’m a proud mama.
      Im somewhat nervous about writing about the boys since they’re adults now and I don’t want to embarrass them so I mostly write about munchkin. But I do want them to know I still love them. Even if I’m all sappy and mushy. You know how boys are 😁

      1. I don’t have boys but my daughters are the same in that regard. But you write anonymously so doesn’t that help them not to feel exposed? Well, having said that, I did once take down a blog post which told some things about one daughter because it upset her.

      2. Well writing anonymously helps. But he’s a follower (not sure how often he reads though). That’s why I was somewhat vague with the details. I just wanted to gloat about him for once since munchkin always get the spotlight. ☺
