Today GameBoy turns 18. And…I think it might be time for a new moniker, he is no longer my Gameboy (although, of course, he will always be my boy).
My life changed forever on the morning he was born. I learned then what it’s like to care more about another person’s life than about my own. He was the greatest gift that I’d ever been given, and I still think he’s 100 percent totally and completely perfect, just because he is himself.
In a few months he’ll be moving on to the next phase of his life (right now, it’s looking like Portland and Lewis&Clark College are on the horizon for him but that’s not yet fully decided). I will surely be shedding many tears as I launch him from the nest this fall. But…I also just can’t wait to see what he will become!
He seems like a wonderful and inquisitive young man – you’re a very lucky mother :) Best of luck to Game’boy’ and everything he does in the future x
Happy b’day GB! He seems like a swell guy and I hope he has a great time at college.
