Wow this growing up stuff sure is hard! Not for them, for me!!!
I went to visit my son at camp yesterday. I always look forward to parents day because it seems such a long time away. My son looked taller and leaner than I've ever seen him. So handsome (yes, I'm a mom!!)
So, we are sitting eating a picnic lunch that I've brought. All his favorites including homemade chocolate chip cookies (I didn't even have one). We are sitting there talking and laughing and this cute little girl comes over. My son introduces her as "Alexa" and then excuses himself and she takes him to meet her parents!!
OMG, his first girlfriend!!! I knew this day would come but I'm less prepared than he. While we were sitting there several girls came by and hugged him and said what a great friend he was and offered him some of their mom's home cooking etc....
Finally, he turns to me and says, "Relax mom, I'm just very popular."
Yes, I could see that. My little boy (who is a head taller than me at 12 1/2) is growing up so fast. His girlfriend lives near us and they already have a movie date for when they return. Of course, he asked that his sister take them. I'm just to momish!
I think I'm still in shock!
