Sometimes the day shines just a bit brighter...



"A Brighter Day"
New Hope, Pennsylvania



Today is one of those days that seems just a bit brighter than usual.  So proud of Thing #1.  Today he gets sworn into the Pennsylvania State Bar Association.  Yep, he passed his bar exam (the legal kind).  And he isn't even making me call him "Esquire", at least in public.  Heading up to the courthouse later this afternoon to beam just a bit brighter as a proud mom who takes credit for teaching him everything he knows about "arguing" a point, ad nauseum.  We are two peas in a pod when it comes to this, especially with each other.  One of his favorite things to say to me when we are in verbal combat is "Just swimming laps in your head Mom".  And it's soooo true.  Love ya Thing #1, proud of ya Thing #1, so glad I'm your mom Thing #1...and that ain't no swimming laps.

  15. I hope your afternoon went really well and that you got to beam big. What an achievement. My oldest is nine so it seems like another world to me even though in another way I realise it's just around the corner. Well done to your son and well done as parents who I'm sure provided support along the way.
