This is our increasingly aging son eating his breakfast before heading off this morning for a week with friends on a vacation. I see a glimmer of things to come and I don't like it. I love having him in my little nest and it is hard to let him go. He will be heading off to Jr. High this year and I know that will bring the first taste of real freedom. The leash will have to get a bit longer. Even though he is only a head shorter than me and I can no longer pick him up he is still a little boy in my mind. I am resistant to see him turn into a man. I have had it easy the last few years. The kids are out of diapers and independent but still think I am smart and fun. I know I am heading into uncharted waters here soon and I hope we have prepared ourselves enough to weather the storm of teenage adolescence. Have fun on your trip my sweet little boy - er, I mean - have fun hangin' with your buddies. Yikes, I don't know how to do this!
