OK, as of today, I can officially say I'm old!!!!(well, I kinda feel old anyway
). In the fall of 2012, my son turned 21 and then a year and a half later moved on out of the house and today, my daughter just turned 21.
I said the same thing when she finally graduated from high school and now since I have two grown adult kids, I get to say I'M the old man.
I'm proud of them both!! My son is in the working field and my daughter is in her senior year at college going after her bachelor's degree.
Being a single dad, I can't financially help them like I want to, but I'm fortunate to know that they don't care because they know I still love them and support them. That's enough for them as they've told me. We never had a lot of money,but always did what we could even during our hardships so that's what matters the most. Just as a dad, I always wanna do more for them. Just my nature to try and put others before me.
I'm five years from the silver mark (50) and with two grown up, healthy kids, I'm good with that.
Both of my kids are nerds like me into the superhero stuff and whatnot and they have their own interests, of course. My daughter is really smart. I still catch her off guard on simple things, but she' smart. My son is pretty simple-minded like me.
Not sure what my son has on his horizon, but I will always want him to do well. My daughter is following her passion for a career in Enviromental Conservation. She'll end up in the Enviromental Science field somewhere specific, but just like my drive to do a job and do my best, she's that way with learning everything about everything she can.
I used this Harley skin to kinda compare her since she's a nerd, smart, and with an awnry side to her, too.
Now back to my rocking chair!!!
