Job Done.

Yes? Please?

Took youngest to vote for the first time. This is the most challenging child and has a way to go, but all milestones passed, directions given, safety net in place but not in personal space..... .

...oh I guess moving out is the final one :/ poop. I can see this one living in the basement, and playing computer games with headphones on, oblivious to the smell from my rotting corpse upstairs as I carked it of old age in my sleep some years previous.....

oh well.... I tried...

But the one that make you shake your head with wonder and worry can be the one who becomes a Billionaire or wins a Nobel prize.

I keep saying this but it never seems to make it true.

Thought my job was done. Mine turned 20, moved out.... but then moved back a few months later -- with an SO! So, for the moment, I have two. Trying to get one to get a GED and the other off to college so that they can start taking care of themselves. As my mom once told me, the job never ends.
