My lovely boy is now fully employed
a real, grown up person and a fully employed employee
I still can't get my head around it
even though he's 19 and WAY taller than us all.
He just recently completed his 2 year apprenticeship in engineering
with flying colours
and was offered a FABULOUS position within the same company
in the very department that he'd wished for
he is now a
apparently this is the very best department to be in
they have their own Christmas party .....
well you have to get your priorities right I guess!
It feels so odd to me, my little boy .....
because in my head that's what he still is.
He LOVES his job
and to me that melts my heart after all of his struggles.
I have spoken about it here, on my blog before
he is very dyslexic
and struggled endlessly through school
at times it was heart breaking for us all
but so stressful for my brave and very courageous boy
I just had to say it.
on my blog.
for all to read.
I AM SOOOOO PROUD.
I am over protective I know
I must stop that
I need to let go ..... how do you do that?
Yesterday he casually texted me from work
to say that he had to go on an errand
he had to drive the company car
on his own ..... he was driving it!
130 miles there. 130 miles back
YES I know ..... arrrggghhhhhh
(my head ~ it was a mess OMG OMG OMG)
My baby boy out there in a strange car, in a strange place, miles and miles away
he, of course LOVED it.
When he arrived home, very late, and after a massive, ginormous and humungous hug
(I'm not kidding)
we heard the whole blow by blow account of his day
I asked him if he minded me telling this story
he said he didn't as long as I showed you his new car!
Congratulations my lovely clever boy
you make your mum so proud
I adore you
(with bells on)
