I am an older Mom, an empty nester, show me some 'luv' and watch my ds.
I adore looking at all the pictures of the pretty babies, I cannot wait for grandchildren, but those are not in the plans. My two children have spent a decade of their young lives in college preparing for their careers. My dd is now 32 and began college at age 16 years. My ds is now 26 and began college at age 14 years. Normal kids, someone dared my dd to take the SAT's and ACT's her sophomore year of high school and only missed one question on each. So she asked if she could try for early admission to the college she chose. They took her and she was off. With the age difference between my children they are more like two lonely onlies, instead of stair step siblings. They are very close though, in spite of the age difference. My ds was not going to take it sitting down and his sister dared him to beat her test scores and college entrance age. So in the 8th grade he took the SAT and the ACT tests missed one question on the ACT. Dd was not impressed. So she double dared him on the college entrance, she figured nobody would take him. We were beating the college offers off with a stick, but he decided to do his undergraduate degree locally and he lived at home and I drove him to campus each day. How odd is that?
My point is, with all that education, they are pretty normal kids. My ds has a hobby of garage bands, TV show host, Radio show host, but still works in his chosen career. When you see this video, he is wearing a $600 suit, the beginning is quintiscential Zach, him being him. He is a true Southern Gentleman, opens car doors for his dates, brings flowers to every date, holds the chair as his date is being seated, and he is pretty cute, too. But the end of the tape is absolutely hilarious! There are funny bits but I skip past the music because I don't understand any of it, even though he did most of garage band stuff here at home.
His sister plays with sea turtles as a hobby with her husband in the US Virgin Islands!
So show an old lady some 'luv' and watch my baby boy, all grown up, and acting the fool. Thanks.
