My eldest Jackson (17) is not into having his photo taken (is any boy??). Here he is already to go out to a mates place for the night, Aviator’s – check, phone – check!
Last year was a very hard year for us as parents of a 17 yr old with all the challenges that go along with it, and the realisation that we have to let go a bit and let him make his own decisions (and pray he makes the right ones). I swear I never knew it would be this hard, do they really think they are bullet proof??? Why didn’t any tell me this age was so hard??? (Insert my mum saying she told me so and reminding me what I was like at this age…..hmm well we won’t go there, and yes Mum you WERE right!). We have had so many ups and downs and yes sometimes it seems more downs than up’s actually but one thing is certain is no matter what we love him with all our hearts.
