In 2011 my dad took my kids on a trip to University of Connecticut. We had no clue that would be the place one of them would end up going to school.Look at how young they were.
This photo is from five years ago. The start of his Journey. I was smiling yet I was nervous. I swear I didn't really want him to go. Although. I was okay knowing that he was still close to me.
I remember literally arguing with him:because he wanted to go to school clear across the county just about, I think it Arizona, Florida,and and I wanna say California.
Eventually setting his sites on the Bachelor of Arts Program at the University of Connecticut.Which we were okay with. Bring that he was much closer. And he was very interested in the Digital Media and Design Program that they had.
The last one is the best one yet .This is his/our final year. Yes,our because we got through this together. No graduation picture(no barber or Graduation 👨🎓 ). Thanks to this Pandemic!You guys will get one when this over(a Graduation picture that is) .
To sum this all up he is a 2020 Graduate from the University Of Connecticut Undergraduate With a Bachelors Degree Digital Media and Design Major Web/Interactive Media Design Concentration.
Congratulations : Mr. Juwan G.Dumas
(I chose to use this photo because it was taken on one of his recent adventures;and he wasn't as serious)
Update: If you’d like to send him a monetary gift for his accomplishment his cashapp is $CydCt
Being that there wasn’t a traditional Graduation celebration due to this pandemic. I see that other people are making their information available. So, I’m making his available as well. Thank you in advance!

Yes, I said that. I’m not sure if that’s a word or not. Quit frankly I don’t care. I’m laughing as I type this.
For the past few days my youngest child has been calling me. Every morning and every other night. Asking why he has to go to school this last few days. I guess dad really didn’t want to be bothered so he threw it off on me.
Even after explaining to him that he needs his education. I’m told they’re not doing much work. I didn’t make my two oldest go on the last days. He’s not going to have a lot of time to enjoy his summer. I still stand by him needing to go his self to school.
Of course, he’s not trying to hear it. And now I’m about to be blocked from calling his phone. I’m annoying, childish, and last but not least I am the worst.
He has no idea that this type of things go into his school record. Nor that he’s actually hurting my feelings. I’m sure he probably doesn’t even care.
It has me thinking am I the annoying and childish mom? And then I remember as a mom that’s not for me to really care about. That’s on him.
When he gets older. Around or maybe even older this his adult siblings he’ll understand. I’m almost positive at one point or another they felt the same way.
I’m not here for him to like me or to be his friend. I’m here to listen and try my best to guide him in the right direction. So, I guess in a way I am momming right! Are you?
