It's about time I'm able to say that I'm the mom of a college student. It took awhile to get to this point but we are finally here and I could not be any happier.
My oldest is finally in college, finally working towards his future goals and it makes me so proud. As any parent, I just want the best for my kids. I, of course, want a better life for them than what I had. And I am willing to help them in any way I can to make that happen. Paying for college for them is one way to make sure that they at least get started on the right path to a brighter and better future.
On the flip side, I do know that college is not for everyone. But I do believe in some sort of higher education post high school whether that be a trade school, an apprenticeship or some kind of work study program. Any and everything necessary for my children to work towards their goal of a happy and successful life.
So yes, my 20 year old son is finally a college student studying to be a digital animator or the like. Here's to hoping he works hard and his hard work pays off and he can live his dream and achieve his goals in life.
