WOO HOO!! I'M THE MOM OF A CHEF!!!
Wednesday, May 06, 2015
The past 2 years have all been leading up to this day! It has been a roller coaster of a ride let me tell you. Each and every high and low have been leading up to this though.
For the past 2 years my son has been going to culinary arts school. Cooking is has always been his first love, but there were so many other things out there that interested him. There were also some really stupid things that led him to a 2 year jail term. But if you were to ask him, it was the best wake up call he could have had. Got his high school diploma and started toward becoming a chef.
Then 2 weeks ago he called and dropped a real bombshell. You may not be aware, but I am looking at hip replacement in June. It was orginally scheduled for May 19th, but his graduation would have been May 21st. It was a no brainer-family comes first. Then Josh calls and said:"Looks like you didn't have to change your surgery date. I'm not graduating in May!" You can imagine my heart just about stopped. Then the little smart a** says : "I am going to be going another year and getting my Pastry/Baking Cerificate and am hoping to get my Humanities done and get my Associates Degree."
He had his final (the school calls it The Black Box) today and he passed! I feel like I could fly to the moon. I really proud of him.
This is I think the best NCV I could ask for. What a great day!
