Friends have praised me. Old loves have whispered of passion. Medical staff have uttered words of astonishment.
None came close to meaning as much as the words from my son.
He and a friend were discussing mothers and the friend said “My mom isn’t as cool as she likes to think she is”.
Nathaniel immediately said “MY mom is amazing!”
This isn’t a brag about mysel.
My boy. He’s just like that. He’s full of laughter. If Chandler from “Friends” and Sheldon from “Big Bang Theory” had a lovechild, it would be Nathaniel. Brilliant, sarcastic, magnificently awkward with the shadows of the man he will be peeking out.
He’s in high school and I already dread the year college will call him away.
I can’t wait to see his future unfold, he’s the one who’s amazing.
It’s really a proud mama life.
