11. You asked for it!

Both my sons have turned out great!

One is 27 and works for a software firm that develops apps for smart phones.
He is self-taught. Didn't go to college. He owns two cars--loves to
drive autocross--and his own townhouse. Without his help, his dad
and I would be at a total loss dealing with home computer issues!

The youngest son--who will be 24 next month-- is legally blind from a juvenile genetic form of macular degeneration.
He sees with his peripheral vision. In 2012 he graduated Phi Beta Kappa with
a double major in German and Comparative Lit. from UNC-Chapel Hill. He is currently
in Berlin on a Fulbright Scholarship and has been accepted (with a darn good financial aid package) to the Yale School
of Drama to begin a three year MFA program in Dramaturgy and Dramatic Criticism next fall.

Yes, I am a proud mama!
