1 month since your little buffalo turned 18

All the emotions are still there gripping around the idea that my baby's boy is a man now.

You turn 18 1 month ago! What!!

It's official: my baby boy is no longer a baby! He turned 18 a month ago and I'm still trying to wrap my head around it. How did time fly by so fast? One minute I was changing his diapers and the next he was asking for the car keys. It's enough to make a mother feel a little bit nostalgic. it was 1 second ago, right? He's my little boy, and the next day he's a legal adult with the world at his feet. I feel like I'm in the middle of a tornado, and I'm not sure if I'm going to come out on the other side in one piece.

But let's be real, there's also a small part of me that's relieved that he's finally an adult. No more curfews, no more worrying about who he's hanging out with, and no more awkward conversations about the birds and the bees. I mean, let's face it, I'm not exactly the hippest mom out there. I still say "cool" and "far out" unironically.

But then, I remember what the Bible says. In Proverbs 22:6, it says, "Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it." So maybe I did something right along the way. Or maybe it was just dumb luck. Either way, I'm trusting in the Lord to guide my son on his journey.

I only have 14 days left till he leaves for college one issue at a time as I laugh at my self and the storm of rain that headed my may,
