Tuba is 18!

I've been a Mama for 18 years. Our sweet Tuba had his birthday recently. 

He's now an adult and Cam and I have loads of official paperwork to do. We have to apply to the court for guardianship. This means that we will have decision making power over finances and medical decisions. It's A LOT. We are trying to save the $2,000.00 an attorney costs and do the process ourselves. We also applied for SSI for Tuba. This was also a ton of work but will be really nice when he is approved. 

Well, that's all the boring stuff that happened around his birthday. We did also have loads of fun.

The kids and I started the day with his favorite breakfast of eggs and bacon. 

After Cam got off work we took the family out for dinner....burgers and fries! Tuba's favorite!

Then we went swimming. Tuba's favorite thing EVER!! We tried a local outdoor pool but it was in the shade and really windy out. Instead we went to an indoor pool. It was tons of fun! The kids LOVED it....and it cost a total of $13 for our family. Bargain!

After the pool we had dessert at home. Raspberry shortcake with whip cream. 

Happy Birthday to my precious boy! Tuba, you see the light shining in the world. That light shines from you and your innocent soul. You delight in the little things in life. You notice the sunset every night and alert us to look too. You are fine tuned to the emotions of other. That is a beautiful gift. You love campfires, pools, chips, beads and babies! We love you Tuba!


  1. He IS the light of love and your family allows that to shine. So did his school - and I expect that to continue. Thank you for sharing this.

  2. Happy Birthday Tuba!!!! May God grant you many years!!! XOXOXOXO Nana
