M turned 21 today! Has absolutely no interest in drinking to celebrate but we may share a glass of wine together later tonight. She is still not working steadily. Little side jobs here and there. She has applied at places and while I am frustrated that she is not putting more effort in, I realize that it is incredibly difficult to do anything with a toddler, too. Connor is everywhere and into everything. She is a 24/7 mother and for that, I am grateful. I try to remind myself that things could have been a lot worse and we are blessed that she is here to raise Connor when we thought we may be raising him alone. So happy birthday to my "baby"!
