To My Loving Children,
I can't tell you how much I love and appreciate all you have done for me through out my "motherhood"! You have always been there for me and encouraged me every step of the way - but I feel like I am now ready to spread my wings and try some things on my own - I know you will understand as each of you has had to take this step and have all succeeded beautifully. However if I fail I know that you will be there but sometimes you just have to let the parent "reinvent" the wheel for themselves.
For 15 years now one of you has always been there (and at times all 3 of you) but I feel I am ready to now use the restroom and take a shower by myself! I appreciate the time and effort it takes for someone to always be having to "check" on me during these times and I hope that by me being able to accomplish this task on my own it will free up some time in your busy schedule - you could text more, play Poptropica on the computer more, more time for Guitar Hero, possibly even branch out and start working on some 4-H projects (I realize this might seem early for that but since you will have the extra time)!
While I can't Thank You each enough for the last 15 years of perpetual updates about what each other is doing wrong, who is on the phone or at the door, asking if I could fix you a snack or sometimes just walking in, taking a seat and feeling the need to chat - I do feel that it is time for me to "go" solo!
Much Love and Appreciation,
