When It Rains It Pours, But At The End The Sun Always Shines

Do you ever have one of those days or weeks when you think it couldn't get worse but then it does? 
For us it's been like that for the past few weeks. From one urgent care visit to a run to the emergency room after Valentina had an accident at school and hurt her upper lip. But just when I thought I'd drown in worrying, my heart tripled in size with some very exciting news. Miguel my always baby boy got his first job!

His first job will be a paid internship at a very prestigious center, and he was selected from a very competitive pool of applicants. The process consisted of three steps, filing out lengthy application, over the phone interview, and in person interview. As each round came, the pool got smaller and I kept reminding Miguel that I was truly proud of him because he'd made it this far. Each time we waited was nerve wrecking, especially after that last step. I had a gut feeling that he'd made it and it was in the bag for him and not because I'm his mom but because I know just how amazing he is. Miguel truly is an amazing young man, that puts his heart into everything he does and gives it his all. Yes, he is quiet but that just means that he's hard at work, making sure all his ideas are are in one place while he finds ways to make his dream a reality!
It's hard to let your baby go, to not have him by your side and keeping him safe but it's so amazing to be able to see him blossom. Now that I think about it, this is why I've been an emotional wreck these past few days. I'm just so proud of my son, so FUCKING proud. It makes my heart hurt in a good way. He's doing what he loves!
A day doesn't go by when I don't remind him just how much I Love him,  have his back and support him 100%. The tears are flowing down my face as I write this post, because I remember those days back in Elementary school when teachers and other parents would tell me that Miguel was the sweetest and that he would do great things, they weren't wrong. This is just the beginning and I'm so very excited to see my baby crush those dreams of his.

My baby love, I love you so much.
I'm so proud of you baby, there are no words to describe just how much I love you.
It's scary to let you out into this world, but I love being able to share just how magical and special you are. You will do great things, I know you will.
You are already crushing it!
My always baby boy, you will always have me by your side. 
Rooting for you and having your back.
Cheers to you living life to the fullest and making those Dreams a reality!

Mami xoxo
