Well, three, if you count the cat (who is currently oblivious to the whole situation).
Just a short time ago Cameron helped Matt load up the last truckload of his belongings and move them into his new abode (Colin’s condo), thus decreasing the size of our household by one and ushering in a new phase of all of our lives. It’s a day we have all been looking forward to, in the best kind of way. Matt will experience true independence for the first time in his life and we will regain some of the freedom we lost when our first child was born. I know some parents dread becoming empty-nesters but I look at this moment as a sign of success. What greater achievement is there than raising your children to become capable, responsible, independent adults? After all, isn’t that what it’s all about?
Tomorrow we will celebrate another milestone when our youngest turns twenty-two. Happy Birthday, Colin!
Matt and Colin, roomies once again. Okay, so maybe they don’t look like the most capable, responsible, independent adults in this picture but underneath those Halloween costumes I assure you that they are.
