How times change for a teenager!

Friday, October 22, 2010

I was able to volunteer for the past 2 days helping my son's high school band get the freshmen fitted for their concert tuxes and dresses now that marching band is over with.

My son is a freshman this year and it is amazing the changes in less than 2 months of high school. He was always one who could care less what he wore. I had to make sure things at least sort of matched!! vbg He was one of many teenage boys that came back and said the pants were baggy and wanted a smaller size. That's the way the pants fit. Tighter waist with a little bit of bagginess in the front.

What was hilarious to me was that not one of the girls said anything about the size we gave them or how it fit. I didn't think I would ever witness boys being more worried about the fit of clothes than the girls. I tried real hard not to grin every time a young man came back with his pants to try to get a smaller size.

I think I am really going to enjoy the high school years and watching the changes. I've known a lot of these kids since kindergarten so I have an idea of personalities.

My son actually said this week that he thought his hair was getting a little long. Ok, who are you and what happened to my son!! VBG

    They grow up so fast. Sometimes I wish I could just have one kid to focus on, but then I reminder how blessed I am to have all of mine. My oldest daughter is a freshmen, too, so feel you with the changes. My oldest son is already a junior and his changes were so much more dramatic then my daughter's (as of now). I think it is weird how boys do seem to start focusing on things they never would have thought about before now. And to think I still have 4 more to go through the freshmen changes is almost scary. Anyways, I could go on forever.
