That's right. We're moms now. Haha! This young man (who will remain nameless for privacy reasons) came to us needing a place to stay. And of course you can't just have a teenager living in your home without contacting the proper authorities and when said authorities investigated they gave us guardianship. Crazy, right? But goodness it's been awesome! We're so glad to have this young man in our lives! Sadly he is living on our couch right now but when we move he will have a room of his own and he's buying a futon from one of our co-workers. He thinks futons are the coolest pieces of furniture ever. It's adorable. So he's super excited about that. Plus he can paint his room whatever color he wants when we move! It will be his own space! This is really exciting! He is such a great kid and hard worker and now we're looking into colleges for him. I am so incredibly proud of him! He's such a blessing to us! It's been crazy to suddenly become a guardian at my young age. But I am so glad we have! He is ours. Our little family is comprised of two young women, a teenage boy, and an adorably fluffy dog! hehe! I love it! And J has taken all of this really well. Which is pretty awesome! I mean I didn't really know what to expect. It's not everyday a girl tells her boyfriend she has a teenage son! haha! But they get along swimmingly!
Now to moving! I am so excited about this move! We are renting a three bedroom home with a fences in back yard for Gatsby (the puppy) and it's in a cute little neighborhood! Essentially we are living the American dream! haha! Plus it has like a normal sized kitchen. Our kitchen in our apartment is extraordinarily tiny. Like only one person can be in the kitchen at a time. So we're pumped to have some elbow room. I put a picture below of our little home. Just 9 more days until we move in! Which means lots of packing in between classes and work for me. I've gotten empty bread boxes from work for packing. They're like the perfect size! I love them! And I actually won't be here on move in day! We didn't have many options on our date and I was already going to be out of town and then as soon as I get back in town my roommate is leaving town so she just decided they would move while I'm gone. Because she's awesome like that. So I'm getting everything packed early. It's super exciting! :)
Anyway! I just got home from dropping him off at school so I should go be productive myself. I will share more adventures of being a mom of a teenage boy later on. I am sure there are many to come!
