Happy 22nd Birthday, Ladybug!!!

Prom May 2009 lani polaroidLailani T. Sheffield, just turned 22 on the 4th of July.

It was a lonely day for me, because she spent it with her friends in Los Angeles, away from me.  Lately, she does a lot of things without me that we used to do together, and I guess that’s because she is an adult now.

As I reflect on her early 20’s it’s an adjustment.

I’m finally starting to get used too it now.   I’m glad for her new-found independence, I’m amazed at how much more independent she is at this age, than I was at that age.

It’s good she doesn’t need me, I guess I’ve done my job as her mother.   Now I need a new job, I sure hope she gives me grand kids after she get’s married.

I’m sure I will be quite busy again, wow that will be a treat!!!

  1. I’ve been there too, it will sometimes be harder and sometimes so much better than this. The biggest gift we give our children is to set them out into life from a firm beginning and be there when we’re needed!

    • Yes, I agree, thank you for that encouragement, It’s her time to fly from the nest and do her thing. I’m glad I got the opportunity to guide her to here. I’m so happy for her independence. Thanks for the comment 🙂
