My youngest son Kevin is turning ... gulp! ... seventeen tomorrow. I can't believe my baby is going to be that old! Where has the time gone?
He had a birthday party today. Had eight of his bestest buddies over to hang in the basement, eat chips, pizza and soda and, of course, play six hours of video games. It was a great time. I left them alone and made mother of the year from Kevin.
The thing is, sometimes as a mother you worry about who their friends will be, what they'll be like and if they'll be a bad influence. I am happy to say that Kevin's friends are terrific. Nice, polite, wonderful young men and women. I enjoyed each and every one of them. It made me feel so good that he has such friends.
I guess you have to trust that your children will pick friends that will be good for them. Today I saw that my trust paid off.
