You guys are always so super-helpful to me and everyone who reads us, so here I am to call on you again for some help.
My youngest son’s high school graduation is coming up soon. This day is totally my youngest son’s day, but then I think… isn’t it a little bit of my day too? We made it this far, and soon… too soon we’re going our separate ways. Him to find his life out there, and me to leap joyfully around my house that I’ll have to myself. But it just won’t be the same anymore when he’s not in my house every day, playing his guitar, serenading my life with his laughter, joy and music, nor will I have to worry about him when he takes my camera and tripod out until 1a for some night photography, nor will I be woken up by his big brother (who is moving out… again and for good… in July) scaring him at 2 a.m.. It will be so much fun to watch the life chooses, to let him find his own way through, but him going so soon after my oldest son moves back out is, well, a little weird and disconcerting, and I need the perfect scent for it.
It must be joyful, with a reach back into memory. It must be full of love because he and his older brother carry my heart around in their bodies. It must be strong so I won’t start weeping like a flipping idiot. I did threaten Harry that I was going to start sobbing inconsolably and very loudly just to embarrass him, and he laughed and said, “Bring it, it won’t bother me, that would be fun!”
So what perfume do you wear to celebrate the ending of my live-with-me mom years and the beginning of watching both of my little ducks go quacking off into whatever life they choose? I’m leaning towards either Mitsouko vintage parfum or Diorling parfum. The thoughts?
