The young ones

Since I first startet this blog, my kids has grown an developed from young kids to young grown ups. My lovely Pink Princesse was 14 years old and my handsome Little Chef was 11 when I started. 
My blog was never mainly about them, but they was part of it, and will still be. 

Now, Pink Princesse is 21 years old, she is currently working in a kindergarden. Her goal is to be a qualifyed teacher for young children, she has found her path, and loving it. The respect and warmth in her voice when se talks about these little people with all their life ahead of them is wonderful! 
She is planning to move in together with her boyfriend, they are so happy and ecxited, all the little tihings one needs when starting your own home for the first time, I still remember some of the stuff I had the first time I moved away from my parents. (When I think of it, I still use a few of them) And then there is all the other practical stuff, what about bills, how much to spend on food, (she: mum, how do I change a lightbulb, I suddenly realize I've never done it! Me: hello, you're moving in with an electrician!!) oh how exciting times, she is so ready, and even though it will be strange for us not to have her around all the time, it's our job to blow wind in her sails! 

Little Chef is far from little anymore! (194 cm tall) He is 18 years old, has got his drivinglicence half a year ago, and got a car about five minutes after the test was passed. He drives all the time, all over the place, and feels free as a bird! He is a very social person, loves to be with his friends! 
He is working in a old peoples institution, with elderly people with dementia. He loves his job, he has a big heart for geriatric health care, this is his path. The first time he told me about what he wanted to do, I was so surprized, but delighted and proud! He is training to be a qualifyed health carer, and hopefully one day a nurse. 

Yorkshire Lad is still my English husband (you never know about these things these days) we enjoy life and pat eachothers shoulders when we see how well our kids are doing, and how lovely people they are! We have much more time on our hands now, no more homework to cry over, no big worries about teenagetrouble. Little Chef complained the other day about how slow and inactive we were, sitting in the sofa one day, watching a film, and I told him, I deserve to relax now, and to find out what I want to do with my time, after having used all my time for the past 20 years to take care of my family. I'll ask him how he feels after bringing up his kids, in another 25 years or so. (If I still can remember) They still need their mommy, thank heavens, and I will always be there for them. 

Krakilette was and is "my place" with all my random things and thoughts, food, family, and other stuff, and so it still will be. 
And because I do not like to post without a photo, and I haven't asked the others permition to post a photo of them, here's one of me: 

This is me, on my third birthday!

You were an adorable little girl! I'm glad to hear that your kids are doing so well. Ours bellow that they expect us to be within 50 feet of the telephone in the kitchen at all times, so they know all is right with the world. I'm so happy that your kids have found paths in life that they will enjoy.
