It's the last time, this year, that Becky from Lakes Single Mum hosts R2BC. I take over for December, then suddenly we are into 2015!? Where has this year gone? How am I suddenly the patent of a 17 year old (boxing day). How am I looking at driving instructors!? So let's take a look at my reasons to smile this week.
1. As I said, my son turns 17 the day after Christmas. This week we ordered his provisional licence, so he can learn to drive. *big, scary, mam gulps*.
2. Gradually preparing for Christmas. I've talked many times about being a parent of children with special needs, this time of the year can be especially scary and tense (a post coming about that tomorrow). So I've gradually trimmed up, and it seems to be going really well!
3. My 11 year old, entering his first music competition. It was awesome! He did so well, I actually forgot that it was his first time playing in front of someone other than family. Unfortunately, my phone is utter rubbish and I only caught his sound check, but I think you'll agree, that's pretty good!
