My BIG little boy
This really hit me hard last night as I was putting away my shoes. Those are mine, on the right. Ten's are on the left. Notice how they're almost the same size?! ARGH!
I did NOT give this child permission to become a young man so soon!
Last week I needed a lightweight jacket to wear to school but I was too lazy to go upstairs to get one out of my closet. So I grabbed Ten's and asked if I could borrow it. AND IT FIT. I don't know which one of us was more surprised.
When I'm picking his clothes off the floor (or fussing at him to do it), reminding him to close his mouth when he chews, or nagging him to brush his teeth, I have a hard time remembering that in less than six years he'll be old enough to get a driver's license. Then I see something like that picture and it slams home the idea that my little boy isn't so little anymore.
Totally immature, maybe, but not so little.
