Ouch! I fell off the Project Life wagon

It's been three weeks since I've been able to do my Project life. It feels like something has been missing, but I vow that I will catch up after my life gets back to normal. What's not normal in my life right now that is keeping me away from Project life is LIFE - Here at the O'Connor's house I am getting ready for the biggest milestone of my son's life high school graduation. Yup this coming up weekend my first born is walking down that aisle to receive his diploma. I've been so busy getting my house ready for the party that we are throwing him. I think as a mom that not only is this a big milestone for my son but for me as well. Anyone who has a teenager will probably say the same. I feel like I've been through a battle field (getting my son through high school and ready for college)and this weekend we both will reach the other side together in one piece. I've been in the mist of remodeling a kitchen and decorating and painting and shopping. It's been a whirl wind and I'm so exhausted truly. As this week comes to a end I guess in a way I can say my life will be back to normal.

I am so excited for my son and all he has accomplished. I am extremely proud of him and wish him good luck on his next journey in life (college). As a mom to a incredible son it's been kind of hard to loosen the grip I've had on him since he was a baby in my arms but I know in my heart I did everything I could to prepare him to go out and start his new life on his own.

I was thinking back to the time when I took him home from the hospital I can not imagine back then anyone could have prepare me for what has taken place through out his 18 years. I was advised way back then that the hardest part of being a mother is with each milestone that our children hit we as mothers we have to let a little part of them go in order for them to grow. I'm proud of where that has lead us but I am sadden by the fact that I know it's time to let a little part of him go in order for him to grow. This is one of the toughest milestones I've been through as his mom.
