My Crowning Glory

"Our greatest achievement isn't our own, but the success of your own child."

That's what a former boss told me when I applied to take a vacation leave to attend Miguel's school awarding ceremony back when he was in first grade. I was grinning from ear to ear back then because he announced it during our team lead meeting.

I am on Mommy Cloud 9 right now. Miguel announced during dinner that he also passed the Ateneo College Entrance Exam (ACET). I was very much content already that he passed the Mapua, UP and La Salle college entrance exams (past post here), but this was definitely additional icing on the cake which I'm sure would make his Papa Lolo and Tito Jay really happy too.

We still have two major events - prom and high school graduation - before he goes off to college, but I am so excited for Miguel. We have been briefing him a bit about college life and prepping him for "life almost on your own". On the other hand, I also just couldn't believe that I'll have a kid in college a few months from now.

Life is awesome. Thank you Lord.
