My son turned 11 years old on thursday the 2nd. My baby is growing up! It seems like it was just yesterday that I would hold him in my arms and he would look up at me with this wide gummy smile and I would be totally loss in his eyes.
I wrote his nickname(peanut) on his card, and he quickly informed me that "he is too old for this". Boy do things change so fast and I don't think I'm ready to let go. I know I am having a mommie moment, but it's mine to have. Anyway, before the night was over he gave me a big hug and told me I can still call him Peanut at home. I Love me "tween" so much and I'll have to deal with him growing and the changes that are about to come. LORD HELP ME!
My oldest is 7. He will be 8 in September. A 2nd grader! I can relate to that. He stood next to me yesterday and he's up to my shoulders!! I told him to stop growing his response "I can't. God wont let me." Thank heavens I have a 2 year old daughter to enjoy those "baby moments" with! It helps with the "letting go". My son tells me he will always be my baby boy. My daughter tells me she's not a baby. she's a big girl. 2072 days ago
