My youngest is 17 on the 17th, today. No, it doesn't make me feel old, but it does put a generation of fun into perspective. I have been involved in the raising of kids since April 1987, when I first met Sgt. Tom, only 11 months old and not even walking yet. The Sgt. turned 24 last Saturday.
The Birthday boy is still a work in progress, eying the Navy, but not realizing the importance of getting through academia first. He'll get it, or the natural consequences will take over.
I don't mean to wish my life away, but the next 13 months will be a count down for us *laughing*
Happy Birthday, son!! Have a GREAT day today, then get your school work done *smile*
