My oldest is out flapping his own wings around and keeping himself up. I am pretty proud.
Tomorrow my youngest turns into a senior. It is a "Senior" moment for me. I have raised three kids with three different results but love them all the same. As I see it as a parent...as long as you love them and show them the way, it's up to them which path to choose.
Some of my kid's have taken detours but have never detoured from my loving them. They are all healthy and that is number one. They are all smart number two...Combining number one and number two is the best I can hope for and the thing I am banking on for number three.. "SUCCESS!"
So what none of them got cars when they turned sixteen? TJ got a car shortly after he turned sixteen and at least he was working, paying for his own gas. I never had a car at sixteen nor did my sister. My brother got one because it was a gift from my grandparents and at least he was responsible enough to take care of it.
