I Can’t Believe It’s True.

Published On August 18, 2015 | By Carrie Buchanan |

Look at me.  Do I look like I’m the mom of a 24 year old?  Because I am.  Officially.  Today.  As of 2:15 this morning to be all official.

I think being a mom is one of life’s greatest blessings, I really do.  There is no set guideline, or plan to follow.  You just learn as you go.  My son is my oldest child.  My first.  I remember how scared I was.  How in the world do you learn to take care of another human being when some days you barely feel like you can take care of yourself?

Today I celebrate that incredible day.  When I became a mom for the very first time.  My son has brought me great happiness in my life.  I spent time this morning going through old family pictures and photo albums and couldn’t believe just how much time has passed.  I looked at family vacations, and holidays.  My son is 24 today.  Unreal.   He’s graduated high school, and college and is now across the country working in a career he absolutely loves and I couldn’t be more proud.

I am the mother of a 24 year old.  Wow.

me and geoff
