Yes, we may not have been able to go up onstage and award him but I know that he will be in the Top 3 of his class this graduation so I'm looking forward to that. K and I have already plotted how he will get to be Top 3 and some of you may think that I am pushing B to his limit and yes, you are right, I am. I am doing this because I know he can and because he is smart. With a little prodding, encouragement, and lots of pushing, he can maximize his potential.
I do this because my Mom did the same with us. I just do it a bit more because after all, this is the only thing I can provide him; a good education.
So, here is his first medal but I know that it definitely won't be his last. I know this because I am his Mom and he is my son.
Congrats B! I love you so much!
