“Son, you outgrew my lap, but never my heart.” ~Unknown
It’s been a week of many new things,
more grown-up things.
The first locker at school,
learning how to open that lock.
A pierced ear,
because that seemed to be the thing to do.
Meetings for joining the golf team.
Trying on golf shoes,
in your mom’s shoe size.
A doctor’s check-up,
the news that you’ve grown three inches.
How did my baby, my first-born, my only son
grow into such a big boy?
Where does the time go?
Not a mischievous toddler anymore,
but a brainy middle schooler.
(Who got into some honors classes! Yes, this mommy is very proud. 🙂 )
No matter your size,
I’ll love you,
Linking up with Alison and Galit for Memories Captured and Bianca for Quotable Bits. Last but not least Greta of G*funk*ified for ippp.
I can’t believe my sweet middle child is already nine.
This past Saturday she had some friends over for some birthday party fun…
- we went for some frozen yogurt treats
- splashed around in the pool
- decorated cupcakes
- and sang “Happy Birthday” (very fast and very loud)
- ordered some pizza and yummy garlic rolls
- had a slumber party
- for breakfast the next morning… decadent cinnamon rolls.
Another year older and more grown-up with each day. My beautiful girl, with her pretty smile, bright blue eyes and sweet, sweet heart. So loved by all. But most of all by her daddy and I!!!
