Well, as of late last night, it is official. My youngest son is engaged.
I have mixed feelings. As a mom, I am excited to see this next chapter in his life but at the same time, he's my baby and I'm sad because he will be leaving. Yes, they have to grow up, but I am closest to him and I will miss our long late night talks, laughing together, watching tv a movie or playing a game. His heart belongs to someone else. I will not be the 'special' girl in his life, she is. She will be there to comfort him, make plans with and share his dreams,goals and desires.
I like her and am excited about their future. But my mom heart is torn. He's my baby.
I knew it was coming and have been trying to prepare myself but it is hard. Anyone else struggle when their kids got engaged??
This is the ring. He did a good job. :-)
